Welcome to the Marine Biology Research Group
Spring (school) is coming
EMBC+ Master Programme at Tjärnö Sven Loven Marine Institute / 7 – 17 April 2014
Köttbullar? Avicii? IKEA? Flying Jacob and ABBA? Yes, we are in Sweden! But Sweden is more than food and music; it is a ‘must do’ nature experience! Especially Tjärnö, a small island on the west-coast teaming of wildlife. Spring is coming but an unusual migration has already brought a new diversity to the former summer residence of the Nobel Family. From 7 to 18 April, 70 young enthusiastic scientists from 18 nations have converged on Tjärnö to lay the foundations for tomorrow’s Nobel Prizes in marine ecology. Here we will keep you informed of their cross-cutting research at the frontiers of marine science.

Copepod research on the white contintent
On the 22nd of December Eva Werbrouck (PhD) and her supervisor Marleen De Troch left to Buenos Aires. Their final destination was King George Island for an Antarctic research expedition on the impact of temperature on the feeding ecology of harpacticoid copepods (Crustacea).
