Research interests

Maarten is interested in the effect of changing environmental conditions on lake ecosystems. He studies the invertebrate communities in lakes, because these organisms are very sensitive to changes in climate, nutrients, hydrology, pollutants, and several other environmental factors. Most of his research takes place at the interface between modern limnology and palaeolimnology, using stable isotope techniques and assemblage composition of living, subfossil and fossil invertebrates.
