 About me

I am a Master’s student of Doz. Dr. Günter Gollmann preparing a thesis on the topic “Body size and condition of Bombina variegata metamorphs: effects on survival, growth and dispersal”.

In my master thesis, I conduct a capture-recapture study in the wild with juveniles of the yellow-bellied toad Bombina variegata to examine the effects of body condition, body length and body mass on winter survival, growth and dispersal in a toad’s first year. The field work takes place within the nature reserve Lainzer Tiergarten in Vienna, where B. variegata populations have been studied for 25 years.
