Enrique LaraMarch 16, 2017: We were pleased to welcome Dr. Enrique Lara from the Laboratory of Soil Biodiversity (University of Neuchatel) to our Laboratory. Dr. Lara is a specialist on testate amoebae with a particular interest in their ecology, diversity, biogeography and evolution. By using classical approaches, molecular phylogenetics/-omics and environmental DNA surveys in different environments (terrestrial, freshwater and marine systems), he is trying to shed light on the forces driving the composition of testate amoebae communities. Please, visit his website if you want to know more about him.
