Arctic Marine System Ecology (AMSE)
Erling Svensen

Our research group focuses on studies of structure and function of high-latitude marine ecosystems. We work on a large variety of organisms, ranging from bacteria through plankton, benthic animals and parasites, to top predators such as fish and marine mammals, and often take a system-level approach. Understanding trophic interactions, life cycles and the responses of organisms to various biotic and abiotic factors including changing climate are common interests within the group. Members of our group also ecotoxicological questions.
