Thorsten's ornithological work focuses in general on the study of the interrelations between birds and the environment, the ecology of birds. He has dealt both with the breeding birds and with the migratory, resting or wintering bird species in Germany.
Already professionally - since 2002 Thorsten works at the State Agency for Bird Conservation of the federal state of Lower Saxony - bird protection has a large importance for him. Bird conservation can only come to bear today if it stands on a solid biological foundation and hard data and facts underpin its necessity. This is what drives Thorsten to do.
