He received the Naumann-Thienemann medal of the International Society of Limnology in 1995. Before his appointment to the Max Planck Society he worked at the universities at Freiburg, Constance and Frankfurt were he developed his experimental, evolutionary approach to plankton ecology. Ulrich Sommer is Professor of Biological Oceanography at the Leibniz-Insititut of Marine Sciences at Kiel University, Germany. His background is originally in limnology. He has become well known for his mechanistic, experimental approach to phytoplankton community ecology. He worked at the universities of Vienna and Constance and at the Max Planck Institute at Ploen, Germany, before he moved to the universities of Oldenburg and Kiel to apply a similar approach in marine systems. Ulrich Sommer has written and edited several books on plankton


This is an excellent introduction to what is arguably Earth's most valuable resiurce. The Quarterly Review of Biology 'I am unaware of any other textbook that explains basic ecological principles and evolutionary oriented, ecological thinking better that this one.' Journal of Plankton Research, Vol. 30. No. 4. pages 489-490 2008 ' excellent text that I would not hesitate to use for teaching courses in ecology and limnology...Lampert and Sommer's updated Limnoecology will make an excellent resource for students of aquatic ecology at all stages. I have often handed the first edition to my starting graduate students to read. Now I have an updated version that will be even more useful.' Volume 16 (4), December 2007
