Molecular ecology views: Metapopulation dynamics from lab flasks to tidal pools

Our co-blogger Peter Fields is joining the lab of Dieter Ebert at the University of Basel this fall, and he sent along these photos of the Ebert group’s long-term work on the metapopulation dynamics of parasite infection in Daphina water fleas. Projects with Daphnia range from a decades-long observational study of populations in tidal pools near the Tvärminne Zoological Station to systematic experiments with networks of mesocosms or microcosms.

If you have photos of your own molecular ecology in action that you’d like to share, please send them our way!
