The PCB seminars widen the scope of the topics covered

From November onwards the PCB seminars will include several presentations related to multidisciplinary research, thus widening the scope of topics covered, which, until now, have focused mainly on disciplines linked to biomedical research.

In this regard, on 11th November at 13 h (Room 1, Modular Building) the first multidisciplinary PCB seminar, entitled “Estudi limnològic dels embassaments del tram baix del Ebre: bases per entendre la dinámica del musclo zebra”, was presented by Enrique Navarro, investigator of the Research Group on Continental Aquatic Ecology (GREAC).

The GREAC focuses its research activity on the study of the effects of human disturbances on aquatic ecosystems, with particular emphasis on the application of findings to the management of basins and water resources. The group has several lines of research and carries out studies on ecotoxicology, regeneration capacity and self- depuration of aquatic systems, the role of riverbank forestation as buffer zones, eutrophication, modelling physical and biological processes and the management of reservoirs.

The PCB seminars, which began last January, aim to boost the day-to-day scientific and social activity of the PCB. The organization of this series of seminars allows the exchange of knowledge in fields of interest to the groups located in the PCB and the development of synergies that strengthen the research activity carried out in its facilities.
