May 15th 2014 Rafael defended his PhD thesis entitled: “Effect of environmental change on the biomolecular composition of phytoplankton and transference to higher trophic levels”. Well Done!
We have a new PhD student in our group – Konrad Karlsson. Welcome!
Konrad’s PhD project will focus on investigating the adaptive capacity of zooplankton to environmental change. His thesis is connected to the interdisciplinary BONUS project BIO-C3, which focuses on causes, consequences and management implications of biodiversity change in the Baltic Sea. Understanding the capacity for biological adaptation is critical to predict effects of climate change. Konrad’s thesis is expected to enhance the current knowledge on environmental tolerances and preferences of various Baltic Sea species.
