Fresh Water Mussels in Lake Chiemsee
Zoom into our next meeting to learn about the research conducted on fresh water mussels surrounding King Ludwig's grandest hideaway, Schloß Herrenchiemsee at Lake Chiemsee.
The mussels are important to the lake’s ecosystem, keeping the water clean and providing necessary habitat for fish reproduction. They also produce sweet water pearls which have found their way to the Bavarian Crown Jewels.
Dr. Katharina Stöckl-Bauer was born in Salzburg, Austria. She studied at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany, where she obtained a B.Sc. in Biology. She proceeded with her Master’s degree in Biology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. After staying abroad, Katharina did her Master thesis and her PhD, where she analyzed habitat quality in freshwater mussel streams in Southern Germany. After working in a planning office in the heart of Munich, she now works at the Bavarian Academy for Nature Conservation and Landscape Management as scientific assistant. Here, she is responsible for planning training courses for public officials as volunteers in nature conservation. She and her family live in a small village close to the city of Salzburg.

It is usually held the first Monday of each month (except August) and is a more personal way for potential and new members to learn more about the club and to meet one another and longer-term club members.
Next meet: Cancelled until further notice
