What we like to do, i.e. publish. (Source: Web of Science, 26 Jan. 2021)
The research interests of MiCHAEL are … small. We focus on aquatic ecology by investigating patterns and processes that underpin the distribution, abundance and diversity of microorganisms in diverse aquatic habitats. Some of our quests deal with the following:
* How do aquatic microbial communities assemble?
* Which members of the microbial trophic web are the key players in defining and maintaining community structure?
* How do these trophic links change over time?
* What is the role of spatial structure in regulating the community’s stability?
* How do abiotic parameters regulate ecosystem functioning of microbial processes?
* What types of association exist between prokaryotes and aquatic animals?
We are happy to participate in a new researh poject: "Effets de la turbulence sur la prolifération et la toxicité des diatomées" (TURBU-DIATOX), funded by CNRS - L’Institut national des sciences de l’Univers (INSU).
We are hosting a special topic in Frontiers "Microbial communities of coastal eutrophic systems". Deadline for submissions is 25 Jan. 2021.
