The Waringer lab explores ecosystem structure and functioning in streams and floodplain waters and biodiversity of aquatic invertebrates in space and time. Another important aspect, both in the field and the lab, is autecological research and ecohydrology which is crucial for defining ecometrics and for fully using the bioindication potential of aquatic biota.Taxonomy is a prerequisite for this work and another key research field of the lab.
