Research Group on Aquatic Ecology (EcoAqua)

The Research Group on Aquatic Ecology (EcoAqua) is one of the 17 research groups from the University of Girona (UdG) funded by the Government of Catalonia (as a Grup de Recerca Reconegut i Finançat per la Generalitat de Catalunya 2017-2019: 2017 SGR 548). It was also financially supported in 2014-2016: 2014 SGR 484). It includes most researchers from UdG attached to the Institute of Aquatic Ecology (IEA, UdG), which belong to groups GRCT002 (Molecular microbial ecologyand GRCT017 (Research Group on Ecology of Inland Waters (GRECO)) from UdG, and is composed from faculty of the Ecology (Department of Environmental Science) and Microbiology (Department of Biology) areas from UdG. EcoAqua is a large, interdisciplinary group, with extensive experience in many limnological areas such as microbial ecology, ecotoxicology, and ecology of a number of taxa, including bacteria, algae, invertebrates, and fish, both from rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and wetlands. Please check our publications and our research projects in this website.

Addressing trait selection patterns in temporary ponds in response to wildfire disturbance and seasonal succession
Mediterranean ecosystems are increasingly threatened by disturbances such as wildfires. These disturbances are expected to shift the selective pressures that determine trait‐dependent community assembly.
International Review of Hydrobiology
Captive breeding conditions decrease metabolic rates and alter morphological traits in the endangered Spanish toothcarp Aphanius iberus
Physiological features of species can determine the resilience and adaptation of organisms to the environment. Swimming capacity and metabolic traits are key factors for fish survival, mating and predator‐prey interactions.
