Lake Ecosystem Resilience – MANTEL Pieces Episode 8

Twelve doctoral students from across Europe, including two from IGB, have produced a set of educational videos on lakes for schools during the COVID-19 lockdown: the MANTEL Pieces. The new videos, all in English, are aimed at 12-14 year olds. Building on their research and using only the resources that they had in their houses and apartments during the lockdown, the MANTEL ITN postgraduates made short 5-6 minute videos on lake physics, lake chemistry and lake biology.

Michael Thayne, doctoral student in the Department of Ecosystem Research at IGB, explains how lakes can have a natural resilience that helps their ecosystems to recover from the effects of climate change and other human pressures.
