DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

This group consists of two interdisciplinary teams, working on the interface of ecology, biogeochemistry and toxicology. For over 15 years, researchers form this group have been collaborating with scientific institutions in Russia and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan), including joint EU projects.

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

The team focuses on biogeochemistry and environmental toxicology works on i.a. geochemical factors controlling functioning of terrestrial ecosystems, on biogeochemical markers of paleoenvironmental changes and on processes of degradation and contamination of the environment.

The team working on ecosystem ecology, carries out long-term studies on vertebrate communities in different biocenoses in the Mazurian Lakeland. This team is greatly interested in ecological consequences of invasive species expansion and in behavioral ecology of water fowl. In their research, scientists from this team use modern measuring techniques, both in the field and in the laboratory.
