Institut d’Ecologia Aquàtica (IEA)

                                                                                     

L’Institut d’Ecologia Aquàtica (IEA) és un institut universitari de recerca creat l’any 1987 i dedicat a l’estudi dels ecosistemes aquàtics continentals (llacs, rius, embassaments, aiguamolls, etc.) i marins. Actualment consta de tres seccions (limnologia, microbiologia i biologia marina), corresponents a quatre grups de recerca. L'IEA té més de 45 investigadors experts en temes d'ecologia aquàtica (incloent estudis sobre bacteris, algues, macroinvertebrats i peixos).

Bona part de l’IEA pertany a EcoAqua (Grup de Recerca Reconegut i Finançat per la Generalitat de Catalunya: 2014 SGR 484 i 2017 SGR 548). La Càtedra Oceans i Salut Humana i la Càtedra d'Ecosistemes Litorals Mediterranis estan dirigides per membres de l'Institut. Podeu consultar la informació detallada sobre els projectes de recerca desenvolupats i les nostres publicacions al menú d'aquest web. Si no estàs vinculat a l'IEA i vols rebre informació sobre les activitats que organitzem, escriu a sec.iea@udg.edu i t'inclourem a la llista de difusió externa.

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.

AFRIMED project: Algal Forest Restoration in MEDiterranean sea
In the Mediterranean Sea, macroalgal forests represent one of the most valuable, but rapidly disappearing habitats. Here, capitalising on the experience gained and the knowledge accumulated in previous projects, we have formulated a consortium that will improve existing, and develop new restoration techniques to efficiently restore degraded macroalgal forests

Organization of Squamata (Reptilia) assemblages in Mediterranean archipelagos
Mediterranean islands have complex reptile assemblages, but little is known about the factors that determine their organization. In this study, the structure of assemblages of Squamata was evaluated based on their species richness and two measures of phylogenetic diversity (variability and clustering).

Microbes inhabiting intermittent streambeds
Multi‐model assessment of hydrological and environmental impacts on streambed microbes in Mediterranean catchments
Microbes inhabiting intermittent streambeds are responsible for controlling and developing many biogeochemical processes essential for the ecosystem functions. Although streambed microbiota is adapted to intermittency the intensification of water scarcity and prolonged dry periods may jeopardise their capacity to cope with hydrological changes

Arsenic Biogeochemistry
Biotic and Abiotic Factors Influencing Arsenic Biogeochemistry and Toxicity in Fluvial Ecosystems: A Review
This review is focused on the biogeochemistry of arsenic in freshwaters and, especially,
on the key role that benthic microalgae and prokaryotic communities from biofilms play together
in through speciation, distribution, and cycling.
