Areas of interest

Current research interests: Dr. Turtureanu’s research uses a combination of field study, environmental modelling and remote sensing to characterize and predict environmental and climatic changes in mountain environments with a particular interest on grassland ecosystems in the Carpathians.  Dr. Turtureanu also operates a remote network of soil climate sensors across the Southeastern Carpathians which support climate monitoring and adaptation initiatives in the region.

General areas of interest:

  • Plant ecology
  • Grasslands
  • Functional ecology
  • Alpine ecosystems
  • Long-term monitoring
  • Remote sensing
  • Dry grasslands
  • Vegetation ecology
  • Biodiversity research
  • Vegetation of forests
