Holger has participated in various projects focusing on invasive species, benthic ecology, fisheries management and ecosystem services.
His PhD research aims to value Australia’s coastal ecosystems in relation to fish production using ecological, social as well as economic measures. He will systematically gather and synthesize existing fisheries datasets to summarise interactions between fish and coastal ecosystems. Results will be then combined with socio-economic analysis to advocate ecosystem-based decision making.
