CeMEB Advanced Course 1, 2013

Marine evolution under climate change

International course for PhD students and post docs.
17 - 23 November 2013, 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.

Invited teachers:
Piero Calosi, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK
Gregory Neils Puncher, Dept. Biological, Geological & Environmental Sciences, University of Bologna
Géraldine Fauville, Dept of Education, Communication and Learning, University of Gothenburg

CeMEB teachers:
Sam Dupont, course coordinator

If you have any questions - please contact Sam Dupont or Eva Marie Rödström.

The course is funded through the Swedish Royal Academy of Science and therefore free of charge. Travel expenses are not included.

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 5 with Stefanie Broszeit, Maria Lechler, Julie B Schram and Simon Stenberg, won the prize and have the opportunity to come back and perform more experiments!
