AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONING
Theoretical and applied researches are carried out on the structure and functioning of both strictly aquatic ecosystems (inland and coastal waters) and on those indirectly dependent on water, with an emphasis on the interactions between abiotic and biotic compartments and on eco-evolutionary processes at multiple spatial and temporal scales..
The general aim of water treatment is to make the water suitable for its intended use, in order to protect human health and the environment and to ensure the proper functioning of the processes in which the water is used. Research in this field must face ever new challenges, which are mainly.
