K-water Plenary Lectures

  • NameIan Donohue
  • AffiliationSchool of Natural Sciences, Department of Zoology, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
  • Title of presentationGlobal change and the stability of ecosystems
  • Website
    • I am a community ecologist and like to use experimental approaches to test theory and explore how we can best predict and enhance the stability of ecosystems. The overarching aim of my research is to further our understanding of how global change alters ecological functioning and stability. An important goal of my work is to bridge the gaps between theoretical, empirical and applied ecology.

  • NameRodolphe Elie Gozlan
  • AffiliationISEM (Institute of Evolution Sciences of Montpellier), University of Montpellier, CNRS,
    IRD, EPHE, Montpellier
  • Title of presentationFreshwater biodiversity decline: consequences for our societies?
  • Website
    • I am a Research Director at the French national research institute for sustainable development (IRD). My early research focused on identifying the ecological constraints on the endangered fish species, which had abundant resources yet were rare and declining. I established a holistic approach, which revealed the importance of larval niches and habitat quality for endemic species persistence as well as the constraints on adult migrations. I have now expanded my study-systems to include complex í«community modulesí» of interacting species, mainly involving invasive fish and emerging pathogens. These closely-coupled systems are well suited for studying fundamental questions in population, community, functional and evolutionary theory and could be applied to the conservation of typically endangered species.

  • NameSoon-Jin Hwang
  • AffiliationDepartment of Environmental Health Science, Konkuk University
  • Title of presentationGlobal Evaluation of Freshwater Ecosystem Health with Emphasis on
    Korean Stream Health Program
  • Website
    • Dr. Hwang is a professor in Department of Environmental Health Science, Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea. He is an aquatic ecologist, and his research areas are plankton and periphyton dynamics, pelagic-benthic coupling, and ecological restoration. He is particularly interested in how natural and human-related stressors affect the structure and function of aquatic ecosystem. Recently, he has been working on the dynamics of harmful material such as geosmin, 2-MIB, and toxins produced by cyanobacteria, using molecular genetic tools (eDNA and eRNA). He is also working on diatom eDNA to find a way of improving conventional bioassessment method. He contributed to establish National Aquatic Ecological Monitoring Program in Korea, and has been a PI of the national survey of aquatic ecosystem health since 2008.

  • NameShinichi Nakano
  • AffiliationCenter for Ecological Research, Kyoto University
  • Title of presentationA Unique Microbial Loop in the Hypolimnion of Lake Biwa
  • Website
    • Shin-ichi is a Professor of Center for Ecological Research (CER), Kyoto University, and an ecologist for microbial loop in freshwater environments. In 1994, he started his research career as a researcher at the Lake Biwa Research Institute, the Prefectural institute for conservation of Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan. He conducted several research projects on bloom forming mechanisms of Microcystis in the lake. In 1996, he moved to Ehime University and studied on protistan (protozoan) ecology in eutrophic lake and coastal marine systems. In 2008, he came back to Lake Biwa as a professor of CER and has so far been conducting researches on food web dynamics, with special reference to bacterial, algal and protozoan ecology, in lakes, especially in Lake Biwa. At the present he is interested in microbial loop of hypolimnion in lakes.
