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.
Mirco Bundschuh shares his experiences after coming back from an interesting visit at a field office of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) as well as the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (CINVESTAV) in Yucatan, Mexico.
The European Commission Journal “Science for Environmental Policy” is reporting on our published paper “Does waterborne exposure explain effects caused by neonicotinoid-contaminated plant material in aquatic systems?”.
In this post, we talk about our recently published paper “UV-irradiation and leaching in water reduce the toxicity of imidacloprid-contaminated leaves for the aquatic leaf-shredding amphipod Gammarus fossarum“.
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.
