We are offering a research internship (Research Project Course) to compare the sensitivity of daphnids towards different fungicide formulations with the same active ingredient.Continue reading
Interested in the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functions under stress and looking for an internship, research project, BSc or MSc thesis? Join us!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)”.
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.
