Marine pelagic secondary production under environmental stress - impacts of climate change and oil exposure

Description

In this project, we used copepods as key species to assess the secondary production in marine ecosystems from Arctic to tropical regions under changing environment. We experimentally test the vulnerability of both generalist and specialist copepods to crude oil components in a warmer environment.
