Details research group Zoology: Biodiversity and Toxicology (CMKDK)


Expertise of the research group :

Invertebrates, and especially freeliving flatworms (Platyhelminthes) are the subject of several research topics:
1. Biodiversity (incl. cryptic biodiversity)
2. Phylogeny and phylogeography based on morphological and molecular markers
3. Effects of pollution (especially heavy metals) on several aspects of the biology of turbellaria: regeneration and stem cell dynamics, life history-parameters, morphology,...
4. Study of cellular and molecular effects of pollution (especially heavy metals).

Keywords :
  • (MULTI)POLLUTION
  • BIODIVERSITY
  • INVERTEBRATES
  • MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR ASPECTS OF TOXICITY
  • PHYLOGENY & BIOGEOGRAPHY
  • PLATYHELMINTHES
  • STEM CELLS AND REGENERATION
  • TAXONOMY
