Analysing size-density relationships of aquatic communities in response to strength of predator-prey interactions and resource subsidy

Our proposal aims to use existing size data of fish and their prey in lakes obtained for European monitoring programs (EU Water Framework Directive) and from several lake-specific research programs to test whether predator-prey interactions and resource subsidy modify the size-density relationships of fish and fish prey as predicted by the Energetic Equivalence Hypothesis

EU regulation on invasive species: suggestions for species to be listed as being of Union concern, and prioritization of their pathways

A new EU regulation to address invasive species entered into force at the beginning of 2015. IGB is involved in a project run by the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) in which a method is being further developed to identify invasive species that are of particular concern in Germany in the context of this EU regulation.

Factors controlling the mobilization of organic matter,

The main objective of this project is to identify the key-factors of organic matter turnover in inundated peatlands. Based on our findings we might improve our predictions regrading the restoration of degraded peatlands.
