Susanne Reiers ORCID record:

FWF project I 4131-B25

The main aim of the project is to evaluate the hypothesis of underground migration of different cyprinids in karst landscapes. Hereby, two cyprinid fishes (Phoxinus lumaireul – Phoxinellus alepidotus) will be included in the project.

Dissertation: "Genetic variation of small cyprinids in the karst area"


Past projects

Pilot study: "DNA barcoding of cercarical-dermatitis-pathogens"
 
Master thesis: "DNA barcoding of fish-parasitizing Acanthocephala in Austria"

Pilot study: "ABOL Parasitic Worms"
