Hello DOMIPEX colleagues!
We are the TEAM 15, from the Institute of Aquatic Ecology (University of Girona). We are Irene, Juanita, Anna, Núria, Elena and Mireia, a very diverse team, with researchers from different departments and lines of research. 

Irene is working in wetland systems, particularly in the study of macroinvertebrate communities and their relation to the environmental characteristics of the ecosystem surrounding them. Juanita, Anna and Núria are working in biofilms and leaf litter decomposition in Mediterranean rivers. We are focused on the ecosystem functioning regarding to the interaction with drought effect, water quality, and anthropogenic impacts.
Elena and Mireia are from molecular microbial ecology group (gEMM). Elena studies the nitrogen cycle, mainly the different fates of nitrite and nitrate in aquatic systems, as denitrification and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium. Mireia is developing her thesis around the role of the uncultured Archaea in the carbon cycle in stratified karstic lakes.

Sampling calendar

Hi all!

After our exciting meeting in Santander, now we're about to start our first sampling period of DOMIPEX, which will be conducted under low-flow stream conditions (summer).

Sampling material has been distributed among participants teams, sites are chosen, field and lab methods have been tested and the sampling protocol has been elaborated (have a look here).

In brief, we'll start informing about team's field visits. At the moment, here's the sampling calendar of DOMIPEX participants.

Happy sampling!

Núria and Ada.
