The Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology

The Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology, CeMEB, brings together a broad expertise in biology. We focus on evolutionary processes and mechanisms in marine species and populations. A main goal is to increase our understanding of how marine organisms adapt to new environmental conditions, for example changing sea water pH, temperature and salinity.

We started in July 2008, when we were selected for a ten year Linnaeus grant awarded by the Swedish Research Councils.

Research for the future!

"Our research delivers urgently needed understanding of how marine organisms adapt to environmental changes over spatial and temporal scales relevant to current processes of global change."

Kerstin Johannesson, Director for the Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology.
