PhD project title:

Spatiotemporal dynamics of benthic community composition and function in a rapidly changing Arctic.

PhD project description:

This project attempts to cover existing knowledge gaps in soft-bottom benthic communities’ species composition and ecological functioning of the north-eastern Barents Sea in a context of rapid environmental change. A part of the study is dedicated to investigate the spatio-temporal dynamics of species diversity and community respiration processes in a year-round basis to describe baseline seasonal patterns and to put them in context with climate change through sediment incubation experiments. Another part of the project will be focused on a time-series study in Rijpfjord, north of Svalbard, where soft-bottom macrofauna samples taken throughout the last two decades will be analyzed to describe potential community shifts in biological structure and functional traits in a rapidly changing Arctic.

Start date: 28. Aug 2019
Planned submission date: 27. Aug 2022
