We are offering a thesis to investigate which food quality descriptor is the best to explain changes in ecosystem functioning under stress. The thesis will be supervised jointly by our working groups Functional Aquatic Ecotoxicology and Ecosystem Resilience.Continue reading
Our research at University of Koblenz-Landau is going virtual at SETAC SciCon! In this three-part blog series, we highlight several poster and platform presentations of our researchers: Today, find out what Ralf. B. Schäfer, Alexander Feckler, and Eric Bollinger have planned for the conference.Continue reading
