Experimental Phytoplankton Ecology

Research group of Stella A. Berger
Planktonökologie Gruppen beim Seelabor Experiment 2016

Plankton Ecology groups (Phyto- and Zooplankton) with guests from the University of Malaga on the LakeLab

My research group focuses on empirical studies to understand effects of individual and multiple environmental factors on phytoplankton development and trophic interactions in complex natural communities. We aim to focus on particular scientific fields including effects of lake brownification and eutrophication, artificial light at night, changes in ice coverage, chytrid-phytoplankton interactions and mixotrophy (i.e. bacterivory of mixotrophic flagellates and ciliates) and their role in aqautic food webs.
