Salinity tolerance of the invasive Pacific oyster (Megallana gigas) New
The invasive Pacific oyster is present in all Danish waters – except Bornholm. The Pacific oyster is in literature known to have a salinity range of 20 - 35 ppt. However, in Denmark the oyster lives at salinities far below 20 ppt
Oxygen uptake and oxygen debt in the common whelk (Buccinum undatum) during aerial storage New
Whelk Fished in Denmark are exported to the Far East. The whelks are boiled before export. The time from catch to boiled are crucial for the quality. Therefore, knowledge on the whelk’s physiology when stored in air is needed.
Oxyregulation capacity (Pcrit) at different temperatures in the shrimp (Crangon crangon) New
Low oxygen is common in the marine environment. Knowledge on when low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. Low oxygen acts in concert with temperature and this dependency is equally important to study.
The thermal window for aerobic scope in shallow water marine bivalves New
Low oxygen are common in the marine environment. When low oxygen becomes limiting for the benthic fauna is important. The thermal window for aerobic scope is equally important to study as it sets the limits for normal activity.
CO2 capture by photosynthetic microorganisms in environments with high CO2 New
Photosynthetic microbes consume the CO2 released by human activities. However, these microbes are inhibited if the CO2 content is too high. This project explores biological solutions to this problem.
MSC-student for "Supporting climate and biodiversity by rewetting organic arable soils" New
The project assesses the consequences of rewetting on carbon sequestration, GHG-emission and biodiversity, all depending on starting conditions and restoration actions. This MSc project will focus on plant traits.
Historical changes to the plant diversity of Denmark during the past 250 years New
Dig down in old botanical surveys and compare to the current plant diversity at the sites.
Evolutionary ecology of parasitoid richness New
The diversity of parasitoid wasps is overwhelming, but why do some host insect species harbour more parasitoid species than others?
The transducerome of taste receptors New
Join the Autzen Lab to help us understand the molecular mechanisms involved in taste perception. Projects available at the BSc and MSc levels, and ERASMUS students with the relevant biochemical background.
