This project examines coexistence mechanisms in multitrophic communities of kettle ponds around Berlin, using the research platform of the  AgroScapeLabs. We focus on zooplankton and macroinvertebrates and study structuring forces of their communities, dispersal and the effects of land use on coexistence mechanisms. See also:  BIBB and  biomove.
