My name is Gregor Kalinkat and I study ecological interactions in all kinds of animals with a particular focus on predator-prey interactions.

If you wonder what is meant by "ecological interactions" you should start here. If you already know about the science of ecology and are interested where my interests within this field are you should check out my research and my publication pages.

Despite having been affiliated with freshwater focused research institutes over the last couple of years (particularly Leibniz IGB Berlin, DE, and Eawag Kastanienbaum, CH) I am not bound to a particular habitat when studying ecology, as you can see on the pictures below:

DE: Hinweis für Besucher, die Texte in deutscher Sprache suchen: Eine zweisprachige Webseite ist für die Zukunft geplant. Zum Einstieg gibt es hier eine Kolumne, die ich zusammen mit Susan Mücke für Krautreporter verfasst habe. Und hier gibt es noch einen Radiobeitrag über unsere Forschung am Gillbach im Rheinland.
