Potential Bachelor or Master thesis in Plant-Insect-Interactions

20.10.2020, Diplomarbeiten, Bachelor- und Masterarbeiten

Interested in a Bachelor or Master project in pollinator ecology, chemical ecology, nutritional ecology or behavioral ecology? Our team at the Professorship for Plant-Insect-Interactions would be happy to supervise your thesis.

Potential topics are:

1. Bachelor & Master projects in bee sensory ecology (Behavioral, analytical and neurobiological methods), e.g.:

• Which substances in pollen odor elicit a proboscis extension response (PER) in honey bees?

• Which nutritional receptors do bees have?

• Which nutrients can be perceived by different species of bumble bees?

2. Bachelor & Master projects in pollination ecology (Field work, lab work, analytical methods), e.g.:

• Pollinator-plant-interactions in alpine regions

• Which impact do environmental factors have on the nutritional composition of pollen and nectar?

• Determining the effect on bees visitation patterns by examining nutritional profiles of pollen and nectar of specific plants visited by bees in the previous year

3. Bachelor & Master projects in bee nutritional ecology (Behavioral, analytical and ecological methods), e.g.:

• Which fatty acids are detrimental to bumble bees?

• Which impact do plant secondary metabolites have on plant-insect-interactions, can they be perceived by bees?

• Can species-specific nutritional niches explain why bees are prone to land use change?

4. Bachelor & Master projects in intraspecific behavior (Analytical and neurobiological methods), e.g.:

• To which components of nest/bumble bee odors do bumble bee antennae react?

You can also propose your own topics anytime! Contact us and we will be happy to discuss your topic with you!
