Les projets de recherche interdisciplinaires EcoImpact sont dans une large mesure motivée par le projet de rénovation des stations d’épuration suisses.
Understanding how environmental stress drives shifts in species distribution and intra-specific phenotypic divergence with special emphasis on maternal effects that are key adaptations during early life-stages.
We test how the effects of thermal stress interact with both natural (parasites) and human induced (chemical pollution) stressors in determining organism performance.
Our work investigates the evolution of natural populations in response to interacting forces of selection and gene flow, and the interactions between genetic variation, phenotypic plasticity and transgenerational effects in diversification.
Understanding the long-term responses of biological diversity to environmental change in an alpine cryptic species complex of Baetid mayflies.
