Tomasz Brzeziński, dr


I am investigating reciprocal interactions between freshwater animals and their environment. My favourite group of animals are molluscs, however in my recent activity I am focused on cladocerans. My research interests include: ecological and evolutionary aspects of interspecific hybridization, dispersal of invasive species and its consequences, trophic interactions between predator and prey, effects of food quality on fitness of animals.


Current research projects:

Application of stable isotopes analysis in quantification of impact of environmental factors on the populations of pelagic cladocerans. NCN 2016/21/D/NZ8/01298, duration: 2017-2020
