International course for PhD students and post docs.
17 – 23 November 2013, Kristineberg, Sweden
What determines species-sensitivity to future environmental stressors and how does it relates to species recent evolutionary history? What life-history strategies will be selected in future ocean? How can we assess a species adaptation potential? What is the role of phenotypic plasticity in species resilience? What will be evolutionary rules in future oceans? What is the role of ecological interactions in future ecosystem changes?
This is an international course for PhD students and postdocs to learn more about how climate change (including global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia) affects evolutionary rules that shape ocean ecosystem.
Your applications should include a short description of your research interest and why you would like to participate, max one A4 page, as well as CV with publication list.
Deadline for registration: 30th September
