I am aiming for comprehensive understanding of biodiversity and terrestrial ecosystems by taking approaches of forest ecology and wildlife biology.
FOREST ECOLOGY - Climate change impacts on forest ecosystem functioning and biodiversity - Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (B-EF) under global change - Plant functional traits - Analysing large-scale and long-term ecological monitoring data
Western boreal forest of Canada
WILDLIFE BIOLOGY - Biodiversity in agricultural mosaic landscape - Values of small woodlands in urban and agricultural landscape - Wildlife ecology (e.g., mammals, birds)
Farmland birds in Japan: Skylarks (Alauda arvensis japonica),
Bull-headed shrike (Lanius bucephalus), and Grey-headed lapwing (Vanellus cinereus)
Stone martens in Bulgaria (National Museum of Natural History, Sofia / Trakia University, Stara Zagora)
