Changing life in lakes
Very briefly, the research of my group could be summed up with one question:
How are we, how is humanity changing life in lakes?
In the Anthropocene, our ecosystems are faced with changes of unprecedented speed and extent. In my group, we are interested to understand how the ecology and evolution of populations is directly shaped by human impacts or indirectly through cascading effects by changes at lower trophic levels. Our work focusses mostly on phyto- and zooplankton. While we are interested in understanding how ecosystem change leads to evolutionary change, our goal is also to study how evolutionary change in return feedbacks to ecoystem change.
