Scientific projects

Local manager of the Schwäbische Alb Biodiversity Exploratory.

I am currently monitoring large mammal species on 25 forest experimental plots in the Swabian Alb Biosphere Reserve, covering the entire gradient of land use intensity and management. Since small mammals are to be recorded in addition to large mammal species, I am currently developing and testing an innovative camera trap specifically designed for accurate identification of small mammal species.

My long-term goal is to comprehensively identify forest structure and management factors that influence the entire terrestrial mammal community throughout the year.
