Environmental science

Living organisms reside and reproduce in a changing environment as a result of climate changes and increased release of hazardous chemicals. At the department of Biological and Environmental sciences environmental challenges are studied in limnic, marine and terrestrial ecosystems. This engages several research groups and programs that address questions from genetics, molecular toxicology, physiology, ecotoxicology to ecology. One focus area is ecotoxicology ranging from metagenomics, microbial and fish ecotoxicology, interactions in algal communities to aquatic biomonitoring. Another focus area is the impact of increased ozone levels on plants and on carbon dioxide exchange between vegetation, soil and atmosphere in the terrestrial environment.
