Research Group of Aquatic Ecology and Ecotoxicology (IBED-AEE)
Department of Aquatic Ecology and Ecotoxicology
The mission of AEE is to generate novel insights for preserving and restoring aquatic ecosystems. A special focus of AEE is on the benthic environment. Scientific insight into the functioning of ecosystems is to be tested and challenged under real world conditions and we wish to develop this insight together with scientists of related disciplines and with societal partners. This research commitment has an essential parallel in teaching: we wish to train students at all levels to follow fundamental and sound scientific approaches for solving complex water problems.
