(CCRD 1) Aquatic Biodiversity

Research Domain 1 acts as a platform that enables us to systematically tackle the broad field of ‘Aquatic Biodiversity’ and develop new overarching concepts. In particular, we seek to: 1) explore genetic and species diversity on various spatial and temporal scales; 2) investigate the environmental factors that determine the structure and functions of aquatic communities; 3) improve our understanding of the structure and ecological functions of aquatic communities (biocoenosis); and 4) further develop methods and research concepts. The research domain is subdivided into the thematic areas ‘Functional Biodiversity’, ‘Genomics and Evolution’ and ‘Stress and Resilience of Ecosystems’. The aim of the research domain is to understand the mechanisms of dynamics and patterns of aquatic biodiversity on various spatial and temporal scales.
