Ecology Division

The Ecology research divison has four research units with advanced knowledge of the basic functioning of the high latitude ecosystems, on land, in the fjords and in oceanic waters.

​Description

Its multidisciplinary research has an emphasis on new technology to enhance the understanding of ecosystem responses to environmental changes.

The common theme is to relate traditional ecological observations to genetics at the molecular level.

Topics of interest include climate and anthropogenic impacts, for example of exploitation strategies, on the genetic developments and population dynamics in terrestrial and marine organisms.

Organisms studied include commercial grouse and terrestrial mammals, lichens, marine fish and benthic species, zooplankton and seagrass and other key species in terrestrial and marine habitat. Food web and other inter-relationships between these species are of interest.

The group is providing insights into key biological processes, distribution dynamics of species and habitats, as well as anthropogenic impacts on biodiversity in coastal zones.
