In this research on local extinction of plant species, the emphasis will be mainly on the appraisal of deterministic and stochastic components of extinctions, in the case of anthropogenic stress (environmental pollution) causing the extinctions. Special attention will be paid to differences in extinction behaviour between common and rare species, and to the relation with invasion and biodiversity in grasslands. A combination of research techniques (mathematical modelling, field experiments, literature study) is used.
