Marine fish traits follow fast-slow continuum across oceans

Why do species occur where they are found? Looking at the traits that species carry may provide the answer, since they determine in which type of environment and with which...

Fat plankton cells

Understandings the conditions leading to fat plankton are therefore important, not only for understanding nutritious conditions of phytoplankton but for the function and...

Trophic interactions drive diel vertical migration patterns

Using a game theoretic and mechanistic model, researchers from the Centre for Ocean Life showed how traits influencing predator-prey interactions shape the diel vertical...

Optimal Salmon Lice Treatment and Tragedy of the Commons

Sea lice on salmon farms are controlled via treatments. Authorities mandate treatments when sea lice infections reach a given threshold. Using a bio-economic model, we...

Biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships in demersal fish communities

While the planet experiences unprecedented human-induced biodiversity loss, from marine to terrestrial realms, and from microbes to large mammals, evidence that biodiversity...

Dense dwarfs versus gelatinous giants

A new theoretical model describes the trade-offs and physiological limits determining the body plan of planktonic filter feeders and explains why gelatinous plankton are...

A trait collection of marine fish species

We compiled 14 traits of 1700 marine fish species on three latitudinal gradients to facilitate large-scale studies on fish traits and functional diversity of fish communities...

Silicified cell walls as a defensive trait in diatoms

Diatoms contribute nearly half of the marine primary production. These microalgae differ from other phytoplankton groups in having a silicified cell wall, which is the...
