Abstract

The aim of this proposed research is to understand how ecological and evolutionary processes along with changes in environmental conditions jointly drive phytoplankton and bacteria community assembly in aquatic ecosystems. Our goal is to integrate recent research on eco-evolutionary dynamics and community assembly, in order to better understand how evolution affects community dynamics and ecosystem functioning. We propose to test how experimental manipulations of biotic and abiotic environmental conditions (e.g. resources, grazers, top predators) influence the spatial and temporal phylogenetic structure of phytoplankton and bacteria communities. This will reveal how environmental change and adaptive evolution of organisms at upper trophic levelscan jointly influence the community dynamics of organisms at lower trophic levels.
