Research profile

The main interest of Tomasz Borowik lies in population ecology and conservation biology of ungulates and large carnivores. He was involved in the national census of wolf and lynx in Poland. During 2007-2011 he conducted a PhD project on the reproduction of red deer Cervuselaphus at different levels of habitat productivity, population density, mortality and climate conditions in three woodlands of north-eastern Poland. His current scientific intersetsfocuse on the space use and habitat selection of moose in Biebrza and Polesie National Parks (eastern Poland).
