Short presentation

During my PhD studies I am looking into priority effects in natural lake bacterial communities. Priority effects can have varying influence on bacterial community assembly and I am especially interested in the ecological context (bottom-up/top-down effects) as an underlying driver. Further, I am interested in the dominance of certain bacterial taxa in freshwater ecosystems and whether arrival timing and priority effects play a role for these successful monopolizers.

Keywords: limnology community assembly priority effects monopolization
