Fish & Freshwater Ecology
Our Team studies the ecology and biodiversity of freshwater systems with a main focus on fishes and the challenges faced by populations in modern anthropogenically influenced waters. In this context, we aim at covering a wide range of application possibilities for our studies, including genetic analyses, monitoring of fish migration, exploring the response of early-life-stages to several stressors or the management and implementation of stocking programs.
