Department: Department of Functional Ecology
Professional specialization: My topic of study is in how different plant functional traits and their intraspecific variability can reflect the abiotic and biotic changes they are faced with in the restored grasslands of White Carpathian Mts. The previous agricultural use of those species-rich grasslands has left residual nutrients and changed the soil physical structures, chemical properties and microbial composition. Comparing those differing soil characteristics with those of reference ancient grasslands and linking it to changed functional traits should give a better idea about why some species can still not establish in restored grasslands and what could be considered when restoring this type of grasslands.
