Research Group on Ecology of Inland Waters (GRECO)

The Research Group on Ecology of Inland Waters (GRECO) is the group GRCT0017 of the University of Girona (UdG) and is composed by the faculty and staff from the Ecology unit (Department of Environmental Sciences) of the University of Girona, which is attached to the Institute of Aquatic Ecology (IEA, UdG)GRECO is a large and interdisciplinary group with extensive experience in numerous limnological research lines (particularly River ecology and ecotoxicology, Ecology and conservation of freshwater fish, and Limnology of Mediterranean lagoons and wetlands).

Susceptibility of European freshwater fish to climate change: species profiling based on life-history and environmental characteristics
Climate change is expected to strongly affect freshwater fish communities. Combined with other anthropogenic drivers, the impacts may alter species spatio-temporal distributions, and contribute to population declines and local extinctions.

pond metacommunities
Dispersal mode and spatial extent influence distance-decay patterns in pond metacommunities
Assuming that dispersal modes or abilities can explain the different responses of organisms to geographic or environmental distances, the distance-decay relationship is a useful tool to evaluate the relative role of local environmental structuring versus regional control in community composition.
Bilayer Infiltration System
Bilayer Infiltration System Combines Benefits from Both Coarse and Fine Sands Promoting Nutrient Accumulation in Sediments and Increasing Removal Rates
Infiltration systems are treatment technologies based on water percolation through porous media where biogeochemical processes take place. Grain size distribution (GSD) acts as a driver of these processes and their rates and influences nutrient accumulation in sediments.

SUDOANG project - Promoting the concerted and sustainable management of eels in the SUDOE area
During the last 40 years, the European eel population has experienced a decline that has led it to move beyond the biological limits of security (ICES 1998) and to be considered as critically endangered (IUCN).
