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. Please also visit the IEA websiteIf you would like to receive information on the activities organized by IEA,  email to sec.iea@udg.edu and we will include you to the external email list.

Projecte Llavor - Producte (FEDER)
Kicking-off the "Viable Bacteria Quantification Kit" Cost Action project
In the food industry, the presence of bacteria is a major safety concern because they can affect the product quality or even lead to health risks. It is known that an increased denstiy of living cells singificanlty increases the risk of biofilm formation and at the same tame viable cell density may indicate the release of living cells from biofilms attached in the closed circuit pipes.

Ingesta de microplásticos por el pez exótico Gambusia holbrooki en dos lagunas costeras mediterránea
Gambusia holbrooki es un pequeño pez Poecílido, de origen norteamericano que fue introducido a principios del siglo XX en humedales de la Península Ibérica para el control biológico de los mosquitos.
Actualmente presenta poblaciones en muchos humedales y está considerada como una de las principales especies invasoras en la península.

Effects of high nitrate input in the denitrification-DNRA activities in the sediment of a constructed wetland under varying C/N ratios
In constructed wetlands (CW), denitrification usually accounts for >60% of nitrogen removal and is supposedly affected by the inflow water and the wetland management practices.
