Biosciences

The biosciences division at the Alfred Wegner Institute focuses on the identification and quantification of species and the investigation of their behaviour and living. We test scenarios of changing biodiversity and biogeochemical processes by coupled physical-biological models. Our main interest centres on interactions between biology and abiotic processes and in particular, on the carbon and energy cycle in the ecosystems of the polar regions and of the shelf and coastal regions of the North Sea.
