Forschungsinteressen 
  • Taxonomy, biogeography and ecology of vascular plants in the Mediterranean, in particular Campanuleae (Campanulaceae), Cisteae (Cistaceae), Pedicularieae (Orobanchaceae), Verbasceae (Scrophulariaceae).
  • Plant biodiversity of Greece and the Aegean. Current: regional floras/annotated checklists of selected Aegean islands, the Central Peloponnese, Northwestern Epirus and Eastern Thessaly.
  • Med-Checklist: a critical inventory of vascular plants of the circum-mediterranean countries (edited by Prof. W. Greuter, Berlin, et al.): Regional adviser (Greece) and co-editing the series Med-Checklist notulae (with Prof. W. Greuter, Berlin).
  • Flora Hellenica (based at botanical institutions in Patras/Greece [UPA], Copenhagen/Denmark [C], Lund/Sweden [LD] and Berlin-Dahlem [B]). Allocated accounts of: Adoxaceae (Adoxa); Boraginaceae (Amsinckia, Asperugo, Borago, Cerinthe, Lappula, Rochelia); Cistaceae (Cistus, Fumana, Halimium, Helianthemum, Tuberaria);Lamiaceae (Galeopsis, Glechoma, Leonurus, Phlomis, Prunella); Linderniaceae (Lindernia); Menyanthaceae (Menyanthes, Nymphoides); Orobanchaceae (Bartsia, Lathraea, Lesquereuxia,Melampyrum, Parentucellia, Pedicularis, Rhynchocorys, Tozzia); Phrymaceae (Mimulus); Plantaginaceae (Bacopa, Digitalis, Gratiola, Sibthorpia); Scrophulariaceae (Limosella); Solanaceae (Atropa, Hyoscyamus, Physalis).
