Cyanobacteria are a constant component of phytoplankton of lakes with different trophic status including lakes representing habitat 3140 Hard oligo-mesotrophic waters with benthic vegetation of Chara spp. In an article in Ecological Indicators Aleksandra Pełechata, Mariusz Pełechaty (Department of Hydrobiology) and Andrzej Pukacz (Polish-German Research Institute, Collegium Polonicum) compared the cyanobacteria community structure of four Chara-lakes: [...]
Masters student of our Institute, Michał Brzozowski (environmental protection), has been awarded a scholarship from the Minister of Science and Higher Education for outstanding achievements for the academic year 2016/2017. Congratulations!
Studies carried out by Marta Pikosz, Beata Messyasz and Maciej Gąbka (Department of Hydrobiology, AMU in Poznań) show growth patterns and distinct ecological niches of species that form mats of algae in freshwaters. Studies have shown spatial variability of densities and biophysical features of monospecies mats created by Cladophora glomerata. These results [...]

Publication in Molecular Ecology Resources: New generation sequencing makes it possible to characterize the immense diversity of co-amplifying immune genes in wild vertebrates
Characterisation of highly duplicated genes, such as those of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), remains a challenging task, yet these genes play a crucial role in coevolution of parasites with their hosts, and may affect the susceptibility of endangered species to disease. In a recent article in Molecular Ecology Resources (link) A. Sebastian, [...]
