(Bio)diversity at IGB

At IGB we carry out research for the future of our freshwaters!

Biodiversity is the variety and variability of life on our Planet. It serves multiple functions in regulating chemistry of the atmosphere, water supply, production of biomass and recycling essential nutrients. At IGB we study various ecological aspects of biodiversity directly related to freshwater ecosystems such as lakes, rivers, groundwaters and wetlands. Our research is focused on a wide spectrum of aquatic organisms, ranging from microscopic life forms to fish, birds and mammals. IGB is extremely diverse in the methodologies of its multidisciplinary biodiversity studies. And of course, research at IGB is carried out by diverse international teams.
