"What determines who is there"; or: the central role of interspecies interactions in the water body and desert crust; or: how to kill established dogmas




Prof. Aaron Kaplan - Faculty of Life Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem


We are trying to uncover the mechanisms that drive ecological processes from field measurements to their expressions in the various "omics". As the title reads, I will focus on two examples from our studies, Lake Kinneret and biological desert soil crusts, and bring evidence that interspecies interactions play a major role in determining "who is there".
