Master and Bachelor projects

Within the CeMaCE you can do an exam project that investigates how naturally produced chemical compounds mediates ecological interactions (e.g. defences, communication etc.) and how the chemical signals are spread in the marine environment. We also investigate how different kinds of environmental changes affect chemically mediated interactions. We are working with several different types of marine organisms (e.g. algae, higher plants, invertebrates, and bacteria). The work can be formed as a 15 to 60 ECTS project and can be focussed towards field- or lab-work depending on your interest.

Some examples of research questions that we address are: 1) Can environmental changes affect how eelgrass and brown seaweeds defend themselves against pathogens and grazers? 2) How do the presence of seaweed chemical defences affect their ability to invade new areas? 3) Are there individual and/or population differences in how predators cope with the chemical defences of their prey? 4) How does chemical signalling affect organisms at different trophic levels (so called multi-trophic interactions)? 5) How do small-scale currents and turbulence affect the spread of chemical signals from e.g. artificial baits?
