Plant Ecology / Invasion Biology
A short presentation of yourself:
I am a Ph.D. Student working at the Institute for Plant Protection and Environment, under the Scholarship of the Ministry for Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia. My Ph.D. studies are part of the Ph.D. program at the Department of Biology and Ecology, Faculty of Sciences, University of Novi Sad.
I am currently in the second year of my Ph.D. studies, and my Thesis deals with the problem of plant invasions in riparian habitats of rivers in the Danube basin, namely on trying to establish main pathways and corridors of invasion along Serbian watercourses, its working title being "Aquatic corridors of plant invasions in Serbia". Also, the ongoing research will put a special emphasis on the problem of Fallopia spp. (syn. Reynoutria spp.) invasion, as these highly invasive species have been documented in Serbia, and it is our aim to establish the current level of their invasion and determine the pathways of their further spread.
