Fields of research and public relations
Our labgroup studies a range of entomo-ecological topics, esp. applied landscape-ecological and biodiversity-related studies in forests and waters, aimed at local / regional / state-scale/ higher scale impact. Research is almost conducted within an network of ecologist (other universities or projects) and NGO- or official institutions (e.g. forestry, nature conservation, land care, water management etc.), special emphasis is given to a transmission of scientific results into landscape-ecological practice.
- Studies in ecology and diversity of insects, esp. aquatic and xylobiontic beetles
- Analysis of habitat- and structure-related insect communities as bioindicators for evaluation and managment in nature conservation issues (…and release of method standards for landscape ecology practice)
- Taxonomy and checklists (Bavaria, Germany)
- Coordination of red data books for beetles: Rote Liste der Käfer Bayerns 2003“ (Bayer. Landesamt für Umweltschutz), „Rote Liste der Käfer Deutschlands 2008“ (Bundesamt für Naturschutz), with H. Bussler
