Functional morphology and physiology of basal metazoa

  • Nickel_2011
Welcome to the porifera.net lab of PD Dr Michael Nickel. We mainly explore the functional anatomy and physiology of sponges (Porifera), within a broader comparative context of the basal metazoan phylogenetic framework. The lab is part of the Institut für Spezielle Zoologie und Evolutionsbiologie mit Phyletischem Museum at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena since October 2007.
