In my research, I am unravelling the diversity of bryophytes (mosses) and lichens in an urban context. This research falls under the HiddenBiodiversity project.

Bryophytes and lichens can tell us a lot about the environment in which they grow. I am researching how we could use lichens and bryophytes as bio-indicators for heat stress in an urban environment as a consequence of the urban heat island. Additionally, I am trying to determine the environmental factors influencing this as well as trying to unravel the biodiversity patterns of lichens and bryophytes. I make use of citizen science to make people more aware of these fascinating organisms.
