further projects...

In addition to the project funded by the BMBF, there are other projects concerning "artificial light" at the various institutes.
Below you find a short description of the theme, the involved institute and the scientist working on it. You find more detailed information in the PDF of each project.


Impact of artificial illumination on the diapause induction of Cameraria ohridella (Lepidoptera: Gracilariidae)

This research project funded by the project MILIEU investigates the effects of artificial light on the induction of the diapause of Cameraria ohridella. The study is conducted by a research group of Applied Zoology of the Biological Institute of the Freie Universität Berlin and the IGB.

Scientist is Eva Häffner
Supervisor of the project is Dr. Sibylle Schroer and PD Dr. Franz Hölker

PDF project description 'Cameraria ohridella'


The influence of light on land-water exchange

This research funded by financial resources of the FU Berlin and the IGB seeks to understand how artificial light changes the behavior of in-stream organisms (invertebrate drift and fish predation) as well as the terrestrial dispersal of adult aquatic insects.

Scientist is Liz Perkin
Supervisor of the project is Prof. Dr. Klement Tockner and PD Dr. Franz Hölker
