I am broadly interested in how diversity, endemism and composition of island floras came, how it is maintained, and how it is affected by human activities. I am taking an macroecological approach and integrate the taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic dimensions of biodiversity. Moreover, I have a keen interest in the global variation of island environments.
