The group on stream ecology and conservation includes 2 senior researchers that hold academic positions. Currently, the group also includes one PhD student. Research activity mainly uses fish as models organisms and is focused on: (i) patterns and processes in assemblage structure and function, (ii) natural and human-induced changes in assemblage integrity, and (iii) water quality assessment and riverscape management.
