Brief description of the main scopes: 

I am interested in the community ecology and conservation biology of aquatic invertebrates. My research interests are currently focusing on the effects of urbanization and anthropogenic disturbances on macroinvertebrate communities. I’m also working on protected native and non-native crayfish (Decapoda) related projects in Hungary.
