Title

Is everything everywhere? A metabarcoding approach to protist biogeography

Author David SINGER
Director of thesis Enrique Lara
Co-director of thesis Edward Mitchell
Summary of thesis We aim to determine the influence of 1) biogeography, 2) environmental filters, and 3) species traits related to dispersal and colonisation ability such as life history traits, growth rate, size and ecological tolerance on distribution patterns of micro-eukaryotes at different taxonomic resolution. We will focus on Sphagnum mosses as a particular habitat, characterised by high moisture, low nutrients and low pH, in order to minimise the effects of environmental filters.
