Exciting experiments in summer 2019

In summer 2019, we will perform our experiments about desiccation effects on biofilm structures and processes in the benthic and hyporheic zone. Matthias Pucher will investigate the effects of drying and re-wetting on microbial abundances, EPS, activity of extra-cellular enzymes, respiration, and the uptake of DOM and nutrients via hyporheic upflow reactors in the lab (see picture). For that purpose, he will sample hyporheic sediments in both intermittent and perennial stream reaches and expose them to drying for approximately 2…
