The Centre for Marine Chemical Ecology brings together researchers in biology, chemistry and biohydrodynamics to collaborate and improve the understanding of chemically mediated interactions between marine organisms and their environment.
Focus is on production and response to bioactive compounds used in chemical defence.
Watch the Formas movie presenting Fredrik Gröndahl and Henrik Pavia as well as the project Macroalgae for a biobased society, culture, biorefineries and energy extraction (SEAFARM) financed by Formas.
Algal cultures are now launched outside the Koster islands.
The first plants of brown algae (Saccharina latissima) are now put out outside Koster in the northern Bohuslän. These algal cultures are part of the SeaFarm project.
The call to the PhD-student course "Meta-analysis in biological and environmental sciences" is now open.
Course leader: Gunilla Toth. Invited teachers: Staffan Nilsson, Jessica Gurevitch and Julia Koricheva.
Deadline for registration: 31 March 2014.
