Brief description of the main scopes:
- Fundamental and applied plant ecological research with special focus on:
- - distribution, abundance, phenetic and genetic diversity of macrophytes in various aquatic environments;
- - reed die-back and colonization;
- - plant adaptations to water supply in aquatic and terrestrial habitats;
- - microbial composition of biofilm formed on aquatic macrophytes and the surrounding water body;
- - environmental DNA-based analysis of aquatic ecosystems;
- - effect of climate change on water quality and aquatic ecosystems of the Danube River;
- - Szigetköz monitoring
- - Joint Danube Survey
