Research Interests
  • My research interest is to describe various spatial and temporal patterns in forest organisms' assemblages from local to global scales, and to unravel the hierarchical mechanisms creating those patterns. I also work on the spatial design of efficient and effective ecosystem management under socio-economic restrictions using spatial biodiversity information.
