    Freshwater & Biodiversity

    In the context of the GeneStream project we studied biodiversity on all levels.

    Species Diversity

    We assessed species diversity in pristine and impaired freshwater ecosystems with traditional and novel DNA-based methods

    Gene flow in impaired rivers

    Human activity has degraded most river ecosystems. We analyze the consequences of these alternations on gene flow and genetic diversity.

    Biodiversity and Function

    We do not only assess not biodiversity in terms of taxonomy but also ecological functions. We assess the link between both parameters in the GeneStream project

    Breitenbach Ecosystem

    Several of our studies have been performed at the Breitenbach, one of the world's best studied stream ecosystem

    In one subproject we assessed how quickly species and genetic diversity is restored after stream rehabilitation programs
