Welcome to the Rautio Aqua Lab website!

Milla Rautio and her research group study freshwater ecosystems, with emphasis on high latitude lakes. They have a special interest in the trophic ecology and biogeochemistry, and how aquatic ecosystems respond to environmental change. Their work includes laboratory and field studies on:
 
  • Lipids in aquatic food webs
  • Winter limnology
  • Ecology, diversity and production of zoo- and phytoplankton
  • Aquatic biogeochemistry
  • Paleolimnology
  • UV radiation effects on zooplankton
  • Impacts of climate change
