PhD project title:

Small copepods in high latitudes.

PhD project description:

My PhD will focus on different aspects of the zooplankton population dynamics in the high latitude ecosystems, with emphasis on the small copepod group. My interest is to comprehend their seasonal variation and ecological importance. For that purpose, I will use a combination of both field and laboratory studies to enlarge the shortage of information available for small copepods in the Northern waters.

Start date: May 2015
Planned submission date: Spring 2020
