Research interests

  • Taxonomy and patterns of diversity and distribution of fungi, especially those associated with arctic and alpine ecosystems.
  • Taxonomy, phylogeny, ecology and nomenclature of myxomycetes.
  • Global biogeography of nivicolous myxomycetes.
  • Arctic-alpine communities of mycorrhizal fungal and plant species.
  • Diversity and distribution of fungi and myxomycetes in Poland, with a special emphasis on rare and threatened species.
