Why search for food if there is little or nothing of it? And why spend a lot of effort foraging if there is plenty of it, particularly since foraging implies elevated...

New paper: Hydrodynamics of microbial filter feeding

What physical constraints govern microbial filter feeding, and what can we derive about the microbial filter feeder as a trait?

Hans van Someren Gréve defended his PhD thesis

Copepods have developed two distinct behavioral strategies that have different costs and benefits when it comes to feeding, mating and avoiding predators. A new PhD thesis...

Gender dependent feeding rates in planktonic copepods

Can differences in behavior between genders lead to reduced male feeding rates?

Life history strategies of the European Seas fish communities

What are the spatial patterns of fish life history strategies in the European Seas and what are their main drivers?

New paper on predation risk in planktonic copepods

Differences in motile behavior related to feeding and mate finding lead up to almost an order of magnitude difference in mortality risk?

New paper on trophic strategies of unicellular plankton

We have developed a trait-based model to describe how the size of organisms and the environmental conditions interact to determine trophic strategies of unicellular plankton...

Benthic-pelagic coupling and ecosystem functioning in a changing world

How are the bottom substrate and water column habitats linked? How does this coupling affect the functioning of the ecosystem and how sensitive is it to human pressures...

New paper on an analytical model of flagellate hydrodynamics

We present an analytical model framework with which we can predict near-cell flows and trajectories of freely swimming unicellular organisms that swim with different numbers...
