CeMEB Advanced Course 2014

Marine evolution under climate change

International course for PhD students and post docs.

1 - 6 December 2014, Kristineberg

What determines species-sensitivity to future environmental stressors and how does it relates to species recent evolutionary history? What life-history strategies will be selected in future ocean? How can we assess a species adaptation potential? What is the role of phenotypic plasticity in species resilience? What will be evolutionary rules in future oceans? What is the role of ecological interactions in future ecosystem changes?

This is an international course for PhD students and postdocs to learn more about how climate change (including global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia) affects evolutionary rules that shape ocean ecosystem.

Marine Evolution under Climate Change

Summery & Evaluation

Prize for best proposal

The students were asked to write and present a proposal for a research project addressing questions relevant to Climate Change and Evolution. 

Group 1 with Leela Chakravarti, Elizabeth Morgan, Tiago Repolho, Alex Ventura and Gaston Alurralde, won the prize and have the opportunity to come back and perform more experiments! 

The winning proposal from Group 1. "Can acute climate change events lead to rapid evolution in Ciona intestinalis"
