Ecological applications of biomarkers in aquatic food web studies
Specialization Course, organised by Liége Université and Ghent University.
UGent, Belgium, 22 – 26 January 2024
The growing demand for a sustainable use of aquatic resources has stimulated research interest in untangling the functional relationships between aquatic organisms, including interactions at the basis of food webs. Knowledge of these (trophic) interactions is a prerequisite to understand and to protect the carrying capacity of aquatic ecosystems. This course will train students in the theoretical concepts and practical application of biomarkers (fatty acids, stable isotopes) to trace the flow of energy in aquatic food webs.
