I investigate the effects of habitat structure, composition and configuration on the distribution and the abundance of rare bird and mammal species. Since habitat quality is strongly affected by land use and climate change, the main objective of my research is to contribute evidence for practical guidance in biodiversity conservation and wildlife management. I apply and combine different methods for data collection and analysis, such as field sampling, remote-sensing techniques, modeling approaches and genetic analysis. The focus of my studies is on
