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”.
Jochen Zubrod provides his impressions on his visit at the 8th Meeting on Plant Litter Processing in Freshwaters (PLPF8) at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “Long-term effects of fungicides on leaf-associated microorganisms and shredder populations – an artificial stream study”.
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh highlights the results of his recent paper “Interactive effects of an insecticide and a fungicide on different organism groups and ecosystem functioning in a stream detrital food web”.
In this post, Patrick Baudy reports on their recent paper on reproductive effects of fungicides in shredders.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “Exposure pathway-dependent effects of the fungicide epoxiconazole on a decomposer-detritivore system”.
In this post, we offer a Research Project Course (RPC)/Bachelor thesis on analyzing samples from a joint project with the German Environmental Protection Agency (Umweltbundesamt; UBA). Continue reading
