  • Ecophysiology of the reed frog Hyperolius sp.
  • Ecology and behaviour of Macrotermes bellicosus
  • Termite and termite fungus ecology, diversity and distribution
  • Fungi ecology, diversity and distribution
  • Floristics and ecology of rock outcrops (Inselbergs and ferricretes)
  • Vegetation dynamics in a forest-savanna mosaic
  • Mammal density, ecology and distribution
  • Faunistic repopulation
  • Camera trap monitoring
  • Chimpanzee behaviour, feeding ecology and tool use
  • Amphibian and reptile ecology, diversity and distribution
  • Comparative studies in pollination ecology
  • Studies in global-  and climate change
