Lights off for the Earth Hour

Around the globe, millions of people are turning their lights off for one hour as a common symbol for environmental protection. The "Loss of the Night" network has composed ideas how to spend one hour without lights.

First it was cows - now it’s larvae!

Scientists have discovered that a certain species of larvae uses methane to propel itself and it is even possible that this mechanism is accelerating the release of gases into the atmosphere and magnifying global warming.

Colloquia

Research on Focus

Do fish have different personalities?

Dr. Kate Laskowski observes shy, bold and dominant individuals and explains how researchers can test personality in fish.

Do we need to better protect the biodiversity in our freshwaters?

Yes, says Dr. Gregor Kalinkat, and explains why species in lakes, rivers, etc. are particularly at risk.

My PhD thesis

Anika Brüning investigates how artificial light at night affects fish species and the balance of whole life communities and ecosystems.  

My PhD thesis

Stefan Linzmaier wants to find out how animal and plant species manage to adapt to a new environment within the shortest space of time, sometimes even displacing native species.
