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.

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.

New paper in SciRep: insights in oocyte dynamics shed light on the complexities associated with fish reproductive strategies
In our new paper published in Scientific Reports we give insights in oocyte dynamics that shed light on the complexities associated with fish reproductive strategies. Our results suggest that an species previously considered indeterminate, perform a low-cost predefinition; and that the potential fecundity estimation should be complemented with primary oocyte dynamics.

What's going on with the sardine in the NW Mediterranean Sea?
Researchers from GRMAR_UdG and LIG_UdG from the University of Girona start a study relating the condition, reproduction, parasitism and genètics of sardine, with the aim to understand the decline of its captures.

Call for a PhD candidate in the frame of the new project #ConSarVar
We are seeking a PhD candidate of biology or similar, interested in working with small pelagic fish.
#ConSarVar is a new projecte on the genomics and condition of sardines from the Mediterranean and its implications for fisheries managment, lead by Jordi Viñas and Marta Muñoz ( from the Universitat de Girona).

Realtionships between parasitism an life-history traits
New paper out on the effects of parasitism on the reproduction and condition of a marine fish (Blue whiting)
High intensities of parasitic nematodes such as Anisakis sp. may compromise marine fish reproduction and condition through the energetic cost of the immune response
