Bio- and Geoaccumuation of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB)
in aquatic ecosystems
Investigations about bio- and geoaccumulation of PCBs.
Analyses of PCBs migration in sediments.
Development of a PCB monitoring.
Co-precipitation of heavy metals with iron-oxidizing bacteria
Analyses of heavy metal turn over processes in lakes, mainly co-precipitation with iron oxidizing bacteria, as transport from the water into the sediment.
Bioaccumulation of Atrazine
Extended research program about bioaccumulation of atrazine as part of a German Scientific Research Community (DFG) priority program.
Development of model ecosystems (small ponds) for ecotoxicological studies.
As part of the DFG priority program, too studies on food intake and growth with Coregonus fera (whitefish) were carried out to get a o a sensitive test fish.
