Lisette Senerpont David Raban Martha Montero
Dr. Lisette N. de Senerpont Domis

after having successfully written a research proposal, she is trying to tackle both ecological and evolutionary mechanisms behind the response of plankton communities to climate warming. To my opinion, these global rapid environmental changes pose both a unique incentive as well as a challenge for understanding ecosystem functioning. In the future, she would like to extend this research line by focusing on adaptation of food webs to climate change. Keeping up with the novel environments created by rising CO2 levels, changes in precipitation and increasing temperatures may require substantial adaptation in organisms. To what extent do environmental drivers such as climate, habitat defragmentation, pollution, and eutrophication interact in (re)structuring food webs? Mrs. De Senerpont is currently working as a researcher at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW).
