Course in marine chemical ecology at Tjärnö:

During 10 weeks in April-June students from the University of Gothenburg learn how chemical signals control ecological interactions in the ocean. Marine chemical ecology is an advanced level course that integrates ecological and evolutionary theories, population and behavioral ecology, natural product chemistry, and experimental design and statistics. The course consists of a theoretical part with lectures and seminars, and an experimental part where students get to apply the knowledge gained through laboratory and independent group work.
