L'effet des nutriments sur la stabilité des communautés pélagiques d'eau douce dans les mésocosmes connectés
Egor is studying anthropogenic effects on lake ecosystems using the Large Array of Experimental Ponds (LEAP) at the Gault Nature Reserve. Specifically, his experiment focuses on how nutrient pollution can destabilize phytoplankton and zooplankton communities within meta-ecosystems (multiple connected ecosystems). Through this research, he hopes to help explain how connectivity mediates or exacerbates the destabilizing effect of nutrient pollution. Photo: Alex Tran, Gault Nature Reserve.
