Marine Zoology

Shelf Ice Edge, Weddell Sea

Our research

The Marine Zoology team investigates marine animals from different regions of the world's oceans. The size spectrum extends from the minute, but extremely abundant copepods (<1 mm ) to the gigantic, but rare blue whales (30 m). Ecophysiological and biochemical adaptations of marine organisms and their environment as well as ecological and energetic aspects of marine communities and food webs are in the center of interest.
