Microbial plankton form the basis of the food web in aquatic habitats. Due to their vast abundances they influence the cycling of elements and the earth’s climate at a global scale. The growth and functioning of microbial plankton communities are strongly influenced by environmental factors, in particular by temperature and the availability of nutrients and light. Verena Brauer seeks to better understand how these factors affect microbial plankton communities, which is highly relevant in the context of global climate change.
