In this post, Stefanie Allgeier and Carsten Brühl report about their recently organized workshop on impacts of mosquito control using Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti), which was part of our project “Establishment of a nature conservation-compatible concept for mosquito control”, funded by the German Federal Foundation for the Environment (DBU).
In this post, Kathrin Theissinger talks about their recently published paper “Using DNA metabarcoding for assessing chironomid diversity and community change in mosquito controlled temporary wetlands”.
In this post, Carsten Brühl informs about their recently published paper “Decreasing Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis sensitivity of Chironomus riparius larvae with age indicates potential environmental risk for mosquito control”.
In this post, the team “Community Ecology and Ecotoxicology” offers a master thesis on the influence of Bti mosquito control on the dynamics of juvenile fish in the Rhine river.
In this post Anna Kästel and Kathrin Theissinger inform you what the new year brings: a new method for DNA based analyzing of environmental samples (metabarcoding), cooperations with the University of Duisburg- Essen and the University of Eastern Finland and hopefully exciting results about the sensitivity of chironomids to Bti!
In this post, the research group „Community Ecology & Ecotoxicology” offers the possibility to conduct either research project or Master theses with them. Continue reading
In this post, Anna Kästel and Stefanie Allgeier talk about our recently finished outdoor mesocosm study dealing with the potential effects of Bacillus thurinigiensis israelensis (Bti) application on an exemplary wetland ecosystem. Continue reading
