Attracting Masters and PhD students to become engaged in aquatic ecology is facilitated, in part, by
the teaching activities of IGB scientists at eight universities in Germany (Humboldt University Berlin,
Freie Universität Berlin, BTU Cottbus, TU Dresden, University of Potsdam, University of Oldenburg,
University of Osnabrück, and Technical University Berlin), and two universities abroad (ETH Zurich
and University of Namibia).
