Research group description

Our research focuses on community ecology of freshwater, particularly lotic, ecosystems. Much of our work in Stream Ecology Group is applied by nature, including restoration ecology, conservation biology and land-use impacts on stream communities and ecosystems. Our work is not specified on a particular taxonomic group but we use any freshwater, or riparian, group that suites best each study question.

PhD students: Joanna Brüsecke, Iina Koivunen, Joel Nyberg, Maria Rajakallio
