Matthias Liess

I am an ecologist assessing long-term effects of multiple stress from low toxicants doses and adverse environmental conditions in aquatic ecosystems.

Based on the understanding of mechanisms we forecast the effects of stressors on structure and function of biological systems.

The results obtained are used to provide advice for regulatory risk assessment and landscape management of toxicants.


I published my results in 126 ISI listed publications cited 3200 times, h-index 33 (10.2015).
