Research interests

Among arthropods, the Hexapoda (insects s.l.) are the most diverse taxon. My research focuses on two different groups of them. Aquatic and semiaquatic bugs (Heteroptera: Nepomorpha and Gerromorpha) show several unique adaptations to their specific habitats. While the first ones occur in nearly all aquatic habitats (e.g acidized mining lakes), the second group conquest the water surface and with five species the Gerromorpha even inhabit the open sea (as the representatives of the Hexapoda). My research mainly deals with the most unique true bugs, the Corixoidea (water boatmen), which are quite different from other true bugs.
Apart from that, I investigate the neuranatomical features of other interesting, but neglected taxa, basal Hexapoda. Here, my research deals with the Protura and in a minor degree with Diplura. Both are tiny inhabitors of the soil (0,2- 5 mm in length). Despite their critical position in evolutionary scenarios and phylogenetic concepts, they are poorly studied. Hence, this study will lead to delightful contribution in the debate on Mandibulata phylogeny (Tracheata-vs. Tetraconata-concept).
To visualize morphological features in both groups (aquatic and semiaquatic bugs as well as basal hexapods) several methods are used microCT, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, serial semithin sectioning combined with 3D reconstruction, and immunofluorescence combined with confocal laser-scan microscopy.

Research interests

My interest are cardiac and skeletal muscle in fish. I use a range of techniques to understand their development and function from molecular biology to electrophysiology.

Skeletal muscle:
In comparison to mammals, fish have different skeletal muscle fibres types (white, pink, red) and the majority of the fish species grew throughout their whole life. There are two process of muscle growth, hypertrophy (increase of fibre size) and hyperplasia (generation of new fibres) and currently these two processes are poorly understood. Therefore, our aim is to examine skeletal muscle from different developmental stages in cartilage and bony fish species to give insights into the ontogenetic mechanism of muscle development and the rule of the regulating factors.

Forschungsschwerpunkte

Modern Zootomy and Evolutionary morphology on both histological and ultrastructural levels, focus on sense organs, brain and epidermal glands (“glandulophylogeny”): exploring and comparing structures, coherence, function, development and evolution of the eyes and cuticular sensilla on the head (in particular the antennae) of Arthropoda, Annelida and Chaetognatha; finding and conceptualizing new characters in order to contribute to still ongoing debated on arthropod systematics, aspects of miniaturization in insect eyes; structural diversity and evolution of epidermal glands in general and secretory cells in particular in “lower” and “higher” Bilateria: e.g. architecture and functional mechanisms of ventral adhesive papillae in Chaetognatha, compound parapodial/segmental glands in Spionidae (Polychaeta), epidermal glands in Sipuncula, comparative ultrastructure and functional capacities and evolution of solitary, aggregated and compound epidermal glands in Myriapoda.

Methods: Electron Microscopy (SEM, TEM, Cryo-EM), Classic microtomy and (differential) histology, Serial sectioning, 3D organ reconstruction (AMIRA-based), Immunohistochemistry against diverse neuronal antigenes and neurotransmitters, fluorescence microscopy, confocal laser-scan microscopy
