Research Interest                                                                                                                      Magyar

  • plant ecophysiology, photosynthesis and water relations of plants, particularly of grasses, adaptation and acclimation to temporary water shortage in temperate semiarid habitats, plasticity of physiological and leaf morphological / anatomical traits in response to environmental stress;

  • responses of seed germination and seedling growth to plant-derived smoke accross various groups of angiosperms;

  • ecology and ecophysiology of C4 plants (particularly grasses) in the temperate zone, variation in C4 leaf anatomy;

  • physiological and morphological plasticity of invasive grasses in response to environmental stresses;

  • thr role of arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in the success of invasive grass species;   

  • photosynthetic, water relations and leaf structural responses of semarid temperate grassland plants to simulated climate change (warming or drought): field experiment on sandy soil;

  • population dynamics and life history traits of the herbaceous perennial Pannonian relict endemism Ferula sadleriana Ledeb. (Apiaceae) in its largest population (Pilis Hill, Hungary); the status of the species' surviving populations in the Carpathian Basin.
