Room 3029

Tel. 0761/203-54042





Research Interest:

  • Lichen diversity
  • Bryophyte diversity
  • Biological Soil Crusts



RTG ConFoBi:

I am belonging to the Research Training Group ConFoBi, Project B1: Epiphyte and Microhabitat Structure. In my PhD, I am going to investigate the epiphytic lichen and bryophyte diversity on selected trees to evaluate the effect of forest connectivity and forest structure on the cryptogamic diversity as well as the influence on cryptogamic species cover. Potential habitat trees in the southern Black Forest are on main interest for the project.
