Gaia Giedrė Banelytė
I earned a Master's degree in nature management from the university of Copenhagen where the main focus area had been the impacts of stand structural variation in managed and unmanaged forests on biodiversity and its conservation. Previously I was also involved in such projects as the rewilding project in Mols Bjerge national park (Denmark), Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring program and EU LUCAS (Land use and land cover survey) project.
