Coastal Ecology


 

The Coastal Ecology section focuses strategically and operationally on the following major themes and research questions:

Long term coastal analyses


What geological and biological changes to coastal systems have taken place over the past decades, how have natural and anthropogenic processes influenced these systems, and can we predict which scenarios are to be expected in the future?

Coastal life strategies

How are organisms, species interactions and the dynamics of communities and their habitats affected by global change, and what consequences do these changes have for evolutionary adaptive strategies?

Coastal system response

How do coastal systems react to changing environmental parameters, and how do these changes influence the structure and function of ecosystems and their physical morphology?
