Are stress responses similar across different regions?
In this post, Verena Schreiner talks about a recently published paper entitled “Similar recovery time of microbial functions from fungicide stress across biogeographical regions”.
PhD opportunity in Functional Aquatic Ecotoxicology
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)”.
New Project: Relationship between biodiversity and functions under stress
In this post, Mirco Bundschuh talks about a recently granted DFG-project “The relevance of the BIOdiversity TO FUNction relationship in heterotrophic aquatic systems under stress” with the unusual acronym “BIO2FUN”.
MSc thesis opportunity: Impacts of chemical stressors on the enzyme activity in microbes
We offer a Master thesis on effects of different chemical stressors on the activity of biopolymer-cleaving enzymes in leaf-associated microbial biofilms.
Projects & theses on effects of fungicide contamination
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.
