The ecological legacy of our ancestors is deeply engraved in the environment today; so as a society, we bear a great responsibility to generations to come. My research aims to understand the land use legacies in our contemporary environment, in order to inform better conservation and land management decisions in the future. I study the Carpathian region – one of the most ecologically and culturally diverse ecosystems in Europe.
