In our project “Freshwater ectotherms under climate change: the role of phenotypic plasticity in life histories and trophic interactions”, we explore how climate change affects water insects and other invertebrates. Those organisms respond to the temperature changes immediately and their life processes are accelerating. Higher temperatures will change aquatic organisms’ survival, the functioning of individual species and can disturb the food chain.
