MARICE – Marine Chemical Ecology Group
Chemical signals mediate some of the most critical interactions in marine communities including mate-finding, detection of prey and avoidance of predators. MARICE aims to increase our understanding of these chemically mediated interactions. It is an interdisciplinary research group that combines expertise in ecology, chemistry, evolution, microbiology, genetics, and hydrodynamics. We use experimental ecology approaches and combine these with state-of-the-art analytics such as the isolation and characterization of metabolites, and exploration of signal propagation in our hydromechanical laboratory.
