Published: 09 September 2019

PhD Alexander Feckler from the Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment received the Linné Prize for his doctoral thesis on how stream-inhabiting fungi, bacteria and small invertebrates are affected by fungicides that we use in agriculture.

The Linné Prize is awarded each year by the Royal Swedish Society of Sciences in Uppsala and is its oldest prize, instituted by a donation by Carl Linnaeus’ widow in 1803. The award ceremony took place in the University Hall on September 3, 2019.
