Dr Jakub D. Zarsky

(BSc University of South Bohemia; MSc Charles University; PhD University of Innsbruck)


I am interested in microbial ecology and ecological stoichiometry. The biogeochemical processes in glacial catchments provide an exciting opportunity to study a relatively simple community dominated by microbes. Ecological stoichiometry helps me to understand  processes on different spatial and temporal scales.

I also have interest in photography and graphics. See my photoblog.
