Abstract:
The research unit in Environmental and Evolutionary Biology (URBE) of the University of Namur studies aquatic organisms and environments (both marine and fresh water), at all integration levels, from molecules to ecosystems. Rather than focusing on specific molecular and cellular approaches of life, URBE investigates the biochemistry, physiology, evolution and ecology of living organisms.

The main research topics include the analyses of physiological, biochemical and molecular responses of organisms to environmental disturbances (pollutions, climate warming, etc.), to molecular ecology and evolutionary genetics, as well as to the ecology of microbial, plant and animal communities in lakes and rivers. Fundamental and applied research is also carried out in the field of aquaculture and on the management of aquatic environments in temperate and tropical regions.
