Systematics and evolution of fungi applying molecular and morphological methods. Current research topics include systematics, molecular phylogeny and ecology of Pyrenomycetes and agarics, myco-ecology and mycofloristics.
Research and teaching is centered on systematics, biodiversity, ecology and distribution of various fungi (in a broad sense). Tight associations exist to the Austrian Mycological Society.
Sydowia and the Austrian Journal of Mycology (Österreichische Zeitschrift für Pilzkunde) are edited in our group.
