Changes in community traits of North Sea fish not similar in time and space

The North Sea fish community has a long history of intense fishing and environmental change. Scientific bottom trawl surveys, which have been ongoing in the North Sea...

Non-mechanistic traits and false trade-offs

Trade-offs are the cornerstone of trait-based ecology. They describe the advantages and costs of a certain trait, and thus determine when and where organisms with that...

New study identifies rapid developmental shifts in the thermal sensitivity of...

Ectotherms often grow to a smaller adult body size when reared in warmer conditions. Typically, this is because development rate increases faster than growth rate with...

Limited impact of big fish mothers for population replenishment

A new paper from the Center for Ocean Life shows that the implications of a recent Science paper by Barneche et al. (Science 360(6389): 642) are much less dramatic than...

Why are some flagellates living in a ribbon case?

Choanoflagellates are filter feeders and an important component of microbial foodwebs. Because they are the ancestors of multicellular life, they have been intensely...

Predator prey games in multiple habitats reveal mixed strategies in diel vertical...

Can we apply economic principles to fish ecology and diel vertical migration? It appears that the way fish and zooplankton behave in the presence of other individuals can...

The global biogeography of zooplankton foraging traits

Do zooplankton traits matter? Scaling up trade-offs to the global scale. Taxa-transcending traits and trade-offs have been shown through lab experiments and literature...

7th Annual Meeting of the Centre for Ocean Life

Centre's annual retreat took place in Hohenwarte 10-13 December to summarize the scientific success of 2018 and discuss future directions.

How does the trait distribution change between oligotrophic and eutrophic pelagic...

When we look at nutrient poor (oligotrophic) and nutrient rich (eutrophic) ecosystem, we generally observe different species. We can therefore conclude that these ecosystems...

Copepods avoid eating Toxic Algae

Copepods avoid eating most toxic dinoflagellates and thus the toxin efficiently protects the algae against grazing
