Die Anpassungen von Organismen an veränderte Umweltbedingungen gehören zu den Forschungsschwerpunkten der AG von Prof. Dr. Laforsch.

Speziell interessieren wir uns für:

  • Phänotypische Plastizität (speziell Induzierbare Verteidigungen)
    Von den molekularen Grundlagen zu ökosystemaren Studien
  • Multiple Stressoren Ökologie
    biotische und abiotische Stressoren
  • Aquatische Ökologie
    Limnologie, Korallenriffökologie
  • Mikroplastik in aquatischen Ökosystemen
    Quellen, Senken, Effekte
  • Bioregenerative Life Support Systems
    Von der Evolution von of gravi-sensing Systemen zu to life support Systemen
