Flying Copepods

Some copepods, mm-sized zooplankton, that live in the very surface layer of the ocean jump out of the water and perform spectacular flights when escaping from predators...

Defence mechanisms in phytoplankton: traits and trade-offs

New review experimentally exploring plankton defense mechanism

22 JAN

Implications of late-in-life density-dependent growth for fishery size-at-entry

Density dependence is the major driving force behind population regulation. Here we looked at density-dependent growth in real-life fish stocks, and how this relates to...

17 JAN

How do copepods respond to toxic prey? And can the copepods acclimate to algal...

Many species of phytoplankton produce substances that are toxic to both human consumers and planktonic grazers, and toxin production is often considered a defense mechanism...

PhD positions at the Centre for Ocean Life

Centre for Ocean Life offers 3-year PhD fellowships in experimental plankton ecology and trait-based modelling within the general topic of trait-based Marine Ecology. The...

05 JAN

Temporal and spatial differences between taxonomic and trait biodiversity in a...

Biodiversity is a multifaceted concept, yet most biodiversity studies have taken a taxonomic approach, implying that all species are equally important. However, species...

6th Annual Meeting of the Centre for Ocean Life

Centre's annual retreat took place 13-14/12 in Faxe to summarize the scientific success of 2017.

04 DEC

How do food-webs respond to climate change?

To understand the effects of climate change on changing ocean biomass, understanding how different species interact is a difficult but necessary task.

28 NOV

Global patterns in marine predatory fish

Why do we find primarily large pelagic predators such as tunas and billfish in the tropics, while in boreal and temperate regions large demersal species of gadoids and...

17 NOV

New paper on invasive species from ocean life

Life-history traits of comb jellies (Mnemiopsis) invaded to European waters start reproducing at a body mass 100 times less than in mother populations. This is consistent...

New postdoc at the Centre

We welcome a new postdoc at the Centre for Ocean life!

17 OCT

New PhD students at the Centre

We welcome two new PhD students at the Centre for Ocean life!

25 AUG

The Centre for Ocean Life has been extended for another 5 years to the end of...

Our application to the Villum Foundation for the extension of the Centre for Ocean Life has been granted. This is great news as it will allow us to continue the high level...

Copepod foraging behaviour shapes the functional response: new paper

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 predation...

15 AUG

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?

26 JUL

Welcome – Aurore and Jeremiah!

We welcome a new PhD student and Postdoc at the Centre for Ocean life!

27 JUN

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...

27 JUN

Gender dependent feeding rates in planktonic copepods

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

05 APR

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?

03 APR

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?
