In this post, Verena Schreiner talks about a recently published paper entitled “Similar recovery time of microbial functions from fungicide stress across biogeographical regions”.
Our working group Functional Aquatic Ecotoxicology is looking for a PhD student to work on the DFG-funded project “The relevance of the BIOdiversity TO FUNction relationship in heterotrophic aquatic systems under stress (BIO2FUN)”.
We offer a Master thesis on effects of different chemical stressors on the activity of biopolymer-cleaving enzymes in leaf-associated microbial biofilms.
We are offering a Bachelor thesis or research project course (RPC) to investigate fungicide effects on different life stages of the crayfish plague Aphanomyces astaci.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “The evil within? Systemic fungicide application in trees enhances litter quality for an aquatic decomposer-detritivore system”.
Is the effect of fungicides on leaf decomposition dependent on substrate properties? Uncover relevant processes and mechanisms in a master thesis with us.
Are sublethal responses of individual shredding invertebrates indicative for changes in ecosystem function? Investigate this question in a bachelor or master thesis using “in situ” bioassays in streams within the vicinity of Landau.
With great wine comes great responsibility! Therefore, the working group “Quantitative Landscape Ecology” offers several projects/theses in a DFG-funded field study analysing effects of fungicide contamination on fungal communities and microbial leaf decomposition.
In this post, we would like to draw your attention to six sessions that we are (co-)organising for the upcoming SETAC Europe 28th Annual Meeting in Rome from 13-17 May 2018.
In this post, Alexander Feckler talks about their recently published paper “History matters: heterotrophic microbial community structure and function adapt to multiple stressors”.
