Aquatic Ecology Research Group (EcoAqua)

Response of aquatic ecosystems to climatic change and other man-made disruptions

Line of research

Permanent researchers: Dani Boix, E. García-Berthou, Stéphanie Gascón, Helena Guasch, R. Moreno-Amich, Xavier D. Quintana, Anna Romaní, Sergi Sabater, Anna Vila-Gispert, Lluís Zamora

Continental aquatic ecosystems suffer numerous anthropic disruptions (for example, construction of reservoirs, pollution, alteration of habitats, invading species), including climatic change (changes in the hydrological regime, increase in temperature, droughts). The effect of these disruptions is studied within the framework of practically all the other lines of research by EcoAqua, hence our highlighting it specifically as another line of research.
