Our team investigates questions in marine benthic ecology, with a common interest in marine conservation related issues. Research lines include, disturbance ecology, spatial ecology, biodiversity and ecosystem function, climate change, predator ecology, invasive species ecology and food-web interactions. We combine different types of approaches from field surveys and experiments in the field and laboratory, as well as making use of long-term monitoring data to explore our research questions.
