Marine Ecosystem Dynamics

To counteract known and future environmental problems, knowledge of ecological interactions and effects of human activity is needed.

The course provides a broad overview of the theoretical, practical and applied aspects of the ecosystem dynamics in the marine environment. This is done in favor of a greater focus on theoretical and practical background of ecosystem dynamics, marine environmental monitoring and practical applications.

An overarching goal is to provide insights about the theoretical frameworks and the research processes that are used to understand and manage marine ecosystems.

  • Course structure

    Teaching format

    The format of the course will be a project-based learning approach with few formal lectures. You will work on projects individually and as a group together to define the project questions, gather the required data and background information, interpret and synthesize the results. You will gain experience in how to gather scientific information and how to communicate the information orally to others in the course, in presentations and in written reports.


    Students will be evaluated based on the presentation of project work, report writing and written examination.
