Project Area:

1.14 Adaptations to Ocean Acidification in mesozooplankton

Research Interests

I am going to investigate the changes in the mesozooplankton community structure over time under different CO2 conditions (long-term mesocosms experiments in Sweden and in the subtropical Atlantic Ocean). The samples will be analyzed on a genetic level using DNA barcoding. Furthermore, I am interested in local adaptations of mesozooplankton organisms that might occur due to direct or indirect effects of ocean acidification (common garden experiments).
