In this post, Jochen Zubrod reports on their recently published paper “Is Hyalella azteca a suitable model leaf-shredding benthic crustacean for testing the toxicity of sediment-associated metals in Europe?”.Continue reading
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh talks about their recently published paper “Wastewater alters feeding rate but not vitellogenin level of Gammarus fossarum (Amphipoda)”.Continue reading
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)”.
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh talks about a recently granted DFG-project “The relevance of the BIOdiversity TO FUNction relationship in heterotrophic aquatic systems under stress” with the unusual acronym “BIO2FUN”.
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh talks about a recently published open access paper entitled “Microbially-mediated indirect effects of silver nanoparticles on aquatic invertebrates”.
We offer a Master thesis on effects of different chemical stressors on the activity of biopolymer-cleaving enzymes in leaf-associated microbial biofilms.
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.
