My interest in nature started early, and so did my interest in research. Over the years, this has involved forestry, forest ecology, wetland ecology, species-rich grasslands, arable land, general plant ecology and especially seed ecology. A common theme is my strive for doing something useful beyond the narrow community of researchers. Along this line, I am an advocate of evidence-based conservation. I have enjoyed travelling, in search for interesting plants and birds, was a postdoc in Western Australia, and have supervised PhD students working in Ethiopia and Nicaragua.
