L13: Ecology and diversity of stickleback in Lake Constance

The aim of this project is to understand what ecological and evolutionary processes might explain the abundance, distribution, and phenotype of stickleback in Lake Constance. This will provide important insights into the management of the Lake Constance ecosystem and the assessment of population control measures of the sticklebacks.
