In this post, Ralf B. Schäfer talks about their recently published book chapter “Ecotoxicology” in the open access book “Riverine Ecosystem Management”.
We are looking for a PhD student in ecosystem analysis to evaluate habitat quality, ecosystem services and the impact of chemical stressors in streams and rivers, based at our Eußerthal research facility and campus Landau.
The Eußerthal Ecosystem Research Station (EERES) offers a master thesis on the topic “Pesticides and Microplastics in Surface Waters around Landau” to students of Ecotoxicology and Environmental Sciences.
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.
The Department of River Ecology and Conservation at Senckenberg in Gelnhausen and the Faculty of Biology at the University of Duisburg-Essen jointly offer a PhD position in stream ecology with focus on the Bavarian Forest National Park.
The Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig offers four PhD positions within the integrated project “Linking catchment scale nutrient export to pelagic, benthic and hyporheic ecosystem functioning across stressor gradients”.
The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala is seeking a PhD student to work in environmental assessment with a focus on stream ecology within the Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment.
In this post, Ralf Schäfer talks about their recently published paper “Assessing recovery of stream insects from pesticides using a two-patch metapopulation model”.
In this post, Trong Dieu Hien Le talks about their recently published paper “Contribution of waste water treatment plants to pesticide toxicity in agriculture catchments”.
In this series of posts, we present you some of the equipment and facilities we use to assess the fate and environmental impacts of chemical stressors. This time: The Landau Stream Mesocosm Facility.
