Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology


The Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology, CeMEB, brings together a broad expertise from different disciplines interested in evolutionary processes of marine organisms. Main foci are how populations evolve, adapt and diverge. This includes processes of adaptation over spatial and temporal environmental transitions as, for example, climate change.

Thematic Issue from CeMEB

The Theme Issue "Species' ranges in the face of changing environments", initiated at the CeMEB webinar last year, is now published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B. The two volumes are guest edited by Marina Rafajlovic, Roger Butlin, Jake Alexander and Kerstin Johannesson, and several CeMEB members have contributed with articles.

CeMEB performs research that is relevant for society and communicates the results. We collaborate with public authorities to develop tools for sustainable management.
