PhD project summary


Within the DFG funded RTG ConFoBi (Conservation of Forest Biodiversity in Multiple-use Landscapes of Central Europe) I am exploring the possibilities of evidence-based guidelines in biodiversity-oriented forest management. To this end, the framework routinely used for guideline development in medical sciences will be transferred to environmental sciences.


Research interests


  • Evidence-based approaches towards decision-making
  • Assessment of statistical validity and reliability
  • Socio-ecological systems
