My main scientific interest lies in exploring microscopic biological remains in all kind of the sediments all over the world for reconstruction of environmental settings, vegetation changes and climate dynamic in the past. Coming to palaeoecology from neoecology, I like to establish connections between extant and fossil taxa and discover their values as palaeoecological indicators. In Quaternary palaeoecology, I especially focus on the Holocene dynamic of the forest-steppe ecotone working in Ukraine, southern Russia, Urals, Siberia, Mongolia, Caucasus, Iran and Turkey.
