Abstract:
The research group Zoology: Biodiversity and Toxicology of Hasselt University was founded in 1976 and was formerly known as the research group Biodiversity, Phylogeny and Population Studies and the research group Zoology. The group conducts research on invertebrate animals, and in particular on free-living flatworms (Platyhelminthes). The main focus lies on the following research topics:
- Biodiversity, including cryptic biodiversity;
- Phylogeny and phylogeography, based on molecular markers and morphological characteristics;
- Effect of pollution on several biological aspects of turbellarians: regeneration and stem cell dynamics, life history parameters, morphology, etc.;
- Molecular and cellular effects of pollution.

The marine research topics concern the biodiversity, phylogeny and biogeography of marine invertebrates, in particular of free-living flatworms. The toxicologal part of the research focuses on the stem cell-oriented coping capacity of regenerative animals towards carcinogenic and neurotoxic compounds and on the role of the redox balance in the process of regeneration, using marine and freshwater turbellarians as model systems.
