When more is less: phytoplankton abundance drives behavior mediated cascades in...

Our traditional view of the interactions between marine organisms is conceptualized as food webs where species interact with one another mainly via direct consumption...

Changes in community traits of North Sea fish not similar in time and space

The North Sea fish community has a long history of intense fishing and environmental change. Scientific bottom trawl surveys, which have been ongoing in the North Sea since...

Non-mechanistic traits and false trade-offs

Trade-offs are the cornerstone of trait-based ecology. They describe the advantages and costs of a certain trait, and thus determine when and where organisms with that...

21 JAN

New study identifies rapid developmental shifts in the thermal sensitivity of...

Ectotherms often grow to a smaller adult body size when reared in warmer conditions. Typically, this is because development rate increases faster than growth rate with...

Limited impact of big fish mothers for population replenishment

A new paper from the Center for Ocean Life shows that the implications of a recent Science paper by Barneche et al. (Science 360(6389): 642) are much less dramatic than...

Why are some flagellates living in a ribbon case?

Choanoflagellates are filter feeders and an important component of microbial foodwebs. Because they are the ancestors of multicellular life, they have been intensely studied...

Predator prey games in multiple habitats reveal mixed strategies in diel vertical...

Can we apply economic principles to fish ecology and diel vertical migration? It appears that the way fish and zooplankton behave in the presence of other individuals can...

Happy Christmas and one final achievement for the year

After a wonderful annual retreat and Christmas party, it is now time to wish everyone a lovely Christmas and for most, safe travels to their home country.

The global biogeography of zooplankton foraging traits

Do zooplankton traits matter? Scaling up trade-offs to the global scale. Taxa-transcending traits and trade-offs have been shown through lab experiments and literature...

7th Annual Meeting of the Centre for Ocean Life

Centre's annual retreat took place in Hohenwarte 10-13 December to summarize the scientific success of 2018 and discuss future directions.

22 NOV

How does the trait distribution change between oligotrophic and eutrophic pelagic...

When we look at nutrient poor (oligotrophic) and nutrient rich (eutrophic) ecosystem, we generally observe different species. We can therefore conclude that these ecosystems...

Postdoctoral Fellowship Available

Postdoctoral fellowship opportunity on modelling of marine nitrogen fixation.

Copepods avoid eating Toxic Algae

Copepods avoid eating most toxic dinoflagellates and thus the toxin efficiently protects the algae against grazing

15 AUG

New paper: Modelling the cost of toxin production in phytoplankton

Is toxin production in phytoplankton costly? How do environmental conditions affect the cost of toxin production?

13 AUG

The trait based approach to Ocean Ecology

Marine ecosystems are overwhelmingly complex. The trait-based method offers a simple way to describe, model, and understand complex marine systems. In a new paper we describe...

06 AUG

New paper: Prey perception mechanism determines maximum clearance rates of planktonic...

What zooplankton foraging strategy is more efficient in terms of volume of water cleared? What mechanism determines clearance efficiency of zooplankton foraging...

Crude oil spills can cause the initiation of harmful algal blooms (“red tides...

After oil spills and dispersant applications, the formation of red tides or harmful algal blooms (HABs) has been observed, but the link between both phenomena was unknown...

Global mismatch in marine conservation protection

A new Ocean Life paper demonstrates a global mismatch in the protection of multiple marine biodiversity components and ecosystem services.

21 MAR

The Smell of Danger

Diatoms change chain-formation and up-or downregulate thousands of genes when smelling copepod grazers

21 MAR

New paper: Sex-specific starvation tolerance in planktonic copepods

Can sexual dimorphism lead to differences in starvation tolerance between copepod genders? Can mating activities reduce starvation tolerance in planktonic copepods?
