(Ph.D. in ethnoecology, 2014, University of Pécs, Hungary) Daniel has experience with interdisciplinary research in ethnoecology (ethnobotany and ethnozoology), and in extensive (traditional) land-use systems (especially European mountainous grassland management). During his Ph.D., he studied the vegetation and the extensive land-use system of a Hungarian community in the Eastern Carpathians with a special focus on traditional ecological knowledge to understand how this local ecological knowledge support natural resource management.
