DTU professor awarded Carlsberg Foundation Research Prize 2019

Thomas Kiørboe, Professor of Ocean Ecology at DTU, receives research prize for his groundbreaking work.

Optimal Salmon Lice Treatment and Tragedy of the Commons

Sea lice on salmon farms are controlled via treatments. Authorities mandate treatments when sea lice infections reach a given threshold. Using a bio-economic model, we...

Planktonic encounter rates with non-spherical encounter zones

A new theoretical approach makes it possible to model planktonic predator-prey interactions and quantify the effects of the encounter zone shape for both non-motile...

Biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships in demersal fish communities

While the planet experiences unprecedented human-induced biodiversity loss, from marine to terrestrial realms, and from microbes to large mammals, evidence that biodiversity...

Dense dwarfs versus gelatinous giants

A new theoretical model describes the trade-offs and physiological limits determining the body plan of planktonic filter feeders and explains why gelatinous plankton...

A trait collection of marine fish species

We compiled 14 traits of 1700 marine fish species on three latitudinal gradients to facilitate large-scale studies on fish traits and functional diversity of fish communities...

Silicified cell walls as a defensive trait in diatoms

Diatoms contribute nearly half of the marine primary production. These microalgae differ from other phytoplankton groups in having a silicified cell wall, which is the...

Honorable mention by the American Naturalist for our paper on evolution of reproductive...

Jellyfish are weird creatures that can reproduce in different modes both sexually and asexually. Similar functional strategies are also present in several other species...

Competition-defense tradeoff increases the diversity of microbial plankton communities...

Defense mechanisms are very common in unicellular plankton. A wide variety of these mechanisms (toxins, shell etc.) is observed and it is rather difficult to quantify...

Why are diatoms so successful?

A mechanistic model of diatoms reveals a conundrum. The defining physical attributes of diatoms – their silica shell and their large central vacuole – give diatoms an...
