Crossing boundaries:
Propagation of in-stream environmental alterations to adjacent terrestrial ecosystems

System Link investigates bottom-up and top-down mediated interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, which propagate from aquatic environments as a result of their exposure to anthropogenic stress. Doctoral researchers in System Link either conduct experiments in unique aquatic-terrestrial mesocosm facilities combined with laboratory and field research, or develop and apply process-based environmental models. They benefit from a targeted course program. System Link started in October 2019.
