Project description

Global change alters marine ecosystems and the services they provide. Whether these services are at risk depends on the resilience of organisms, populations and communities. We use a tight interplay of laboratory experiments and simulation modeling to unravel the potential of marine organisms and communities to acclimate, adapt and/or disperse, and to retain ecological functioning under realistic future ocean scenarios.
