Cornelius Kuhlisch successfully defended his dissertation on mosquito species in Germany.

Cornelius Kuhlisch successfully defended his dissertation on mosquito species in Germany with a "Magna cum laude" at the Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald on November 26th, 2020.

His thesis entitled "Distribution, habitat binding and morphological peculiarities of selected mosquito species (Diptera: Culicidae) occurring in Germany" was written under the supervision of PD Dr. Helge Kampen (University of Greifswald, Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute) and Dr. Doreen Werner (ZALF). At ZALF, Mr. Kuhlisch worked as part of the working group "Biodiversity of Aquatic and Semiaquatic Landscape Features" in Research Area 2 "Land Use and Governance". His work includes an analysis of the permanent establishment of the invasive Asian tiger mosquito in Jena in relation to local winter temperatures, and an investigation of three rare native mosquito species for character variation and habitat use. Among other things, it was found that the distribution of these mosquito species is insular, which Kuhlisch attributes to biotope loss.
