7-4.1: THE RISK OF ESTABLISHMENT OF AQUATIC INVASIVE SPECIES

Research interests/current works
My research is focused on aquatic invasive species, their parasites and its impact on the local biodiversity. Both, the invader and their parasites can show aspects of the resent and prospective climate change. The parasites also will be analyzed for the zoonotic background. In this study among other interests I will investigate fish and crustacean species of Hessian rivers (especially the river Rhine and Main) for its metazoan parasite fauna. Also an overview of all invasive species is provided. Therefore different techniques of modern biodiversity research are used, like infection tests in order to study parasitic life cycles, PCR, sequencing, molecular phylogenetics, as well as conventional methods like microscopy.
