HUMAN IMPACTS ON ECOSYSTEM HEALTH AND RESOURSES IN LAKE EDWARD (HIPE)

Lake Edward is shared between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The lake is unique amongst the East African Great Lakes as its shoreline is completely surrounded by protected areas. Lake Edward stands out due to its high productivity, but, in the last decades, its fishery seemed to have collapsed.

INVAXEN: Invasive biology of Xenopus laevis in Europe

Information on the invasive potential of a species is crucial to assess likely future impacts on biodiversity and to improve the scientific basis for decision-making on biological invasions.

BEHAVIOURAL AND GENOMIC ASPECTS OF CICHLID SPECIATION (GENBAS)

The main objective of this project is to define the genomic differentiation that drives the mate choice, and hence the speciation process (differential gene-expression in the brains of female fishes).

Caterpillar hunter beetles (Calosoma) from the Galapagos.

IS EVOLUTION REPEATABLE? INTRODUCING NOVEL TOOLS TO UNRAVEL THE GENETICS OF A PARALLEL GALAPAGOS RADIATION (GENESORT)

Within island archipelagos, an identical set of morphologically and ecologically distinct species is often repeatedly found on the different islands.

Speedy sampling design (upper panel) to investigate the effect of urbanization at both large as well as small spatial scales. Beetle communities respond to urbanization by an increase in warm dwelling species and an increase in long-winged species with go

SPATIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINANTS OF ECO-EVOLUTIONARY DYNAMICS: ANTHROPOGENIC ENVIRONMENTS AS A MODEL (SPEEDY)

The overall objective of SPEEDY is to obtain integrated insight into the responses of populations and communities to urbanization.

CONGO BASIN INTEGRATED MONITORING FOR FOREST CARBON MITIGATION AND BIODIVERSITY (COBIMFO)

Aims to improve our understanding of the elusive underlying patterns of the dynamics of African tropical forests: the presumed relationship between biodiversity and above ground carbon stock.

FROM CARBON TO FISHES (COBAFISH)

The Congo River harbours the richest known fish species diversity on the African continent. Its fish fauna also represents a major source of proteins for the riparian human population. Despite of this, the ecology, dynamics and ecosystem functioning of the Congo River remain poorly understood.
