CURRENT SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS:
1. Analysis of vegetation structure and the processes behind the pattern in grassland and forest communities. Which processes are responsible for diversity maintenance? Is regeneration limited by the lack of seeds, the lack of safe  microsites or the lack of the appropriate fungal symbiont? What is the share of biotic and abiotic factors in generating the between- and within-stand variation in community structure and composition?
2. Restoration of biodiversity in seminatural grassland ecosystems. Is it possible to restore the original species composition in overgrown or cultivated seminatural grasslands? Is the additional input of diaspores needed? What is the optimal management regime? 
3. Diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in global and regional scales and forces behind the variation of diversity.
4. Is mycorhhiza balancing competition and increasing plant species evenness and diversity? Is the patchiness of AM fungal communities determining the structure of plant populations and communities?
5. Theory of species coexistence and analysis of ecological mechanisms maintaining species diversity. Concepts of the so-called species pool theory. Interrelation between biological diversity, primary productivity and ecosystem services.
