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 talk about our recently published paper “Relative importance of dietary uptake and waterborne exposure for a leaf-shredding amphipod exposed to thiacloprid-contaminated leaves”.
In this post, Matthias Wieczorek talks about their recently published paper “Structural and functional effects of a short-term pyrethroid pulse exposure on invertebrates in outdoor stream mesocosms”.
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, Alexander Feckler talks about his recently published paper “Quantitative real-time PCR as a promising tool for the detection and quantification of leaf-associated fungal species – A proof-of-concept using Alatospora pulchella”.
In this post, Dominic Englert talks about their recently published paper “Does waterborne exposure explain effects caused by neonicotinoid-contaminated plant material in aquatic systems?“
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, Mirco Bundschuh highlights the results of their recent paper “Antibiotic mixture effects on growth of the leaf-shredding stream detritivore Gammarus fossarum”.
The working group Quantitative Landscape Ecology offers a master thesis dealing with the effects of imidacloprid on leaf litter breakdown and associated organisms. Continue reading
