Fish behavior

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.

Illustrations of GAM fits to size spectra and mainly diatoms

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.

Copepod

Copepods avoid eating Toxic Algae

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

Phytoplankton

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?

The trait based approach to Ocean Ecology
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...

Maximum clearance rates of planktonic copepods
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...

Illustration of crude oil spills can cause the initiation of harmful algal blooms
01 MAY

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...

Spatial mismatch in global conversation prioritization

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.

Skeletonema marinoi

The Smell of Danger

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

Centropages male and female
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?

Defence mechanisms in phytoplankton: traits and trade-offs

New review experimentally exploring plankton defense mechanism

Copepods

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...

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...

Copepod
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...

Temporal and spatial differences between taxonomic and trait biodiversity in a large marine ecosystem
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...
