I am interested in various aspects of diversity and ecology of terrestrial plant communities and methods of their study. My research focuses on vegetation survey (including fieldwork mainly in Central Europe and southern Siberia), development of large databases of vegetation survey plots, development and testing of new methods of formalized vegetation classification, alien plant invasions, determinants of species richness in plant communities, and interpretation of full-glacial and early Holocene environments using modern analogues from relict ecosystems in Siberia.
