- Research on the possibilities of citizen science (CS) for the monitoring and management of wildlife species in the working group of Dr. Hannes König. Target species are wolf (Canis lupus), European bison (Bison bonasus), and moose (Alces alces), which are in the process of recolonizing an agricultural landscape (Brandenburg, Germany) after a significant period of absence. Development of a CS framework which addresses diverse participants to realise a better human-wildlife coexistence.
Monitoring is a prerequisite for evidence‐based wildlife management and conservation planning, yet conventional monitoring approaches are often ineffective for species occurring at low densities. However, some species such as large mammals are often observed by lay people and this information can be leveraged through citizen science monitoring sche...

Understanding which variables mediate people's attitudes towards wildlife species is fundamental for improving human-wildlife coexistence in increasingly human-dominated landscapes. Based on questionnaire responses (a total of n = 589 responses, of which n = 459 were complete and used for statistical analysis), we investigated the attitudes of visi...
Predation on livestock presents a daunting challenge for human–carnivore coexistence in agricultural landscapes. In Germany, the recolonization of wolves is ongoing and its consequences are insufficiently understood. Knowledge about which livestock species are susceptible to wolf predation, which farm types are predisposed to attacks by wolves, and...
Sustainable landscape management of protected areas in UNESCO-biosphere reserves (BR) has become an increasingly important topic for academics and environmental practitioners, yet it remains unclear how this can be operationalized in actual regional circumstances. To achieve positive and measurable sustainability impacts, effective BR management on...
Successful conservation efforts have led to recent increases of large mammals such as European bison Bison bonasus, moose Alces alces and grey wolf Canis lupus and their return to former habitats in central Europe. While embraced by some, the recovery of these species is a controversial topic and holds potential for human‐wildlife conflicts. Involv...
Since 2012, the citizen science project ‘Mückenatlas’ has been supplementing the German mosquito monitoring programme with over 28,000 submissions of physical insect samples. As the factors triggering people to catch mosquitoes for science are still unknown, we analysed the influence of mass media reports on mosquito submission numbers. Based on a...
The anthropocentric perception of the world-which operates on the basis of monetizing any living being-brought this issue to a critical point. The narrative of intersubjective reality, a determinism romanticized by the idea of a binary dialectic of "human" and "nature", is now challenged by the coronavirus crisis (COVID-19).
As wild areas disappear and agricultural lands expand, understanding how people and wildlife can coexist becomes increasingly important. Human–wildlife conflicts (HWCs) are obstacles to coexistence and negatively affect both wildlife populations and the livelihood of people. To facilitate coexistence, a number of frameworks have been developed to b...
Although biodiversity conservation is a prioritized topic globally, agreements and regulations at multiple levels often fail to meet the desired effects due to insufficient knowledge transmission about and tolerance toward environmental protection measures among the public. To find effective measures to solve human-wildlife conflicts (HWCs) and pro...
Citizen Science (CS), a term for citizen engagement in scientific research, enables large₋scale and low-cost data collection. It allows the active participation of citizens in scientific research including topics such as environmental issues, social problems and regional history, and provides room for interaction between citizens and scientists.
