Scientific activity:

  1. Life histories, development biology and population dynamics of land gastropods, mainly snails of the family Clausiliidae and Helicidae s. lato.
  2. Anatomical and histological studies on the development, structure and function of reproductive system and hermaphroditic gland in snails of the family Clausiliidae and Helicidae s. lato.
  3. Revision of localities and studies on the biology of endangered terrestrial gastropods of Lower Silesia.

Current projects:

  1. Population dynamics and life history of Charpentieria ornata (Rossmässler, 1836) (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Clausiliidae).
  2. Distribution, ecology and life history of Helicigona lapicida (Linnaeus, 1758) (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Helicidae).
  3. Distribution, ecology and life history of Clausilia parvula Férussac, 1807 (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Clausiliidae).
  4. Life histories of clausiliids of the subfamily Baleinae (Gastropoda: Pulmonata: Clausiliidae).
  5. Adaptations to ovoviviparity in land snails – adaptation analysis of reproductive system and shell in clausiliids of the subfamily Baleinae (Gastropoda: Clausiliidae).
