Study of picoplankton of a large African lake

Project: PHD

Project Details


The project is a study of Lake Tanganyika picoplankton, with respect to its nature, its abundance and its production. It aims, thanks to the use of various techniques (epifluorescence, cytometry, moleular biology) at characterising spatial and temporal variations of this picoplankton, as a function of environmental conditions. Remote sensing is also used to extend the spatio-temporal resolution to the entire lake.
