  • Modelling the effects of vegetation on flood retention and aquatic habitats using habitat modelling and the development of flood scenarios
  • Structural analysis of agricultural woods and visualisation using 3D laser scanning
  • Investigation of the plant physiology and rooting of agricultural trees and shrubs in order to gain insights into the development of the microclimate, the water balance and the rooting dynamics of these wood species
  • Implementation of an agro-wood plantation in the Dresden region
