... is employed at the Institute of Silviculture, BOKU Vienna, since September 2012. As a research assistant and PHD-student he works for Prof. Dr. Lexer in the project ARANGE (advanced multifunctional forest management of European mountain ranges). Main focus of his work is quantification of forest ecosystem services and comparison of multifunctional management regimes, where a special focus is set on mountain forest ecosystems and expected change in climatic and socio economic conditions. He is applying the forest ecosystem model PICUS in a range of European case study regions.
Florian finished the Master’s program of "Forest Science" at BOKU Vienna in 2010, with the thesis "A model for estimating annual increment rates after thinning treatments in spruce dominated forest stands" (abstract) on the Institute of Forest Growth. Thereafter he was employed by a forestry consultant company, doing field work for inventories, stand mapping and management planning. Field work turned out to be a great opportunity to get in contact with different forest types of the eastern Alps and to learn about applied management approaches. The gained experiences are still inspiring the current scientific research activities to create knowledge relevant for practical forest management.
