I am working on :
Conservation Biology
Forestry and forest sciences
Landscape ecology
Keywords : forest biodiversity
Project description : I am generally interested in projects dealing with forest biodiversity, also these that include its contribution to human well-being.
Networking opportunities : I am trying to avoid unnecessary participation in conferences involving long-distance flights. At the moment I have not decided about any new coference to attend. But, I am easily available for discussions on Skype etc.
