Organisation

Zoology: Biodiversity and Toxicology (CMKDK)

Research Group

Main organisation:Biology - Geology
Lifecycle:1 Jan 1990  →  Today
Organisation profile:

Invertebrates, and especially freeliving flatworms (Platyhelminthes) are the subject of several research topics:
1. Biodiversity (incl. cryptic biodiversity)
2. Phylogeny and phylogeography based on morphological and molecular markers
3. Effects of pollution (especially heavy metals) on several aspects of the biology of turbellaria: regeneration and stem cell dynamics, life history-parameters, morphology,...
4. Study of cellular and molecular effects of pollution (especially heavy metals).

Keywords:(MULTI)POLLUTION, BIODIVERSITY, INVERTEBRATES, MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR ASPECTS OF TOXICITY, PHYLOGENY & BIOGEOGRAPHY, PLATYHELMINTHES, STEM CELLS AND REGENERATION, TAXONOMY
Disciplines:Animal biology, Ecology, Evolutionary biology , Genetics, Molecular and cell biology, Aquatic sciences, challenges and pollution
