Climate change is increasing in the frequency and intensity of extreme heat events during European summers. Heat waves are enhancing the water thermal stratification in the Mediterranean Sea with dramatic consequences for coastal ecosystems. As a consequence of these heat waves, it has recently been predicted that Posidonia oceanica meadows could be functionally extinct by the middle of this centu ...

Diatoms carry out 1/5 of the photosynthesis on Earth and are essential to aquatic ecosystems. In addition to their fundamental role in carbon fixation, they play a key role in the biogeochemical cycle of nitrate and silica, have other complex metabolic abilities (urea cycle, fatty acid metabolism) and developed several strategies for the adaptation to different, sometimes extreme, environments. An ...

Study of Nitric Oxide Synthase in Amphioxus (AmphioxusNOS)

Start date: 01 Aug 2011, End date: 31 Jul 2015,

It is clear that a conserved set of developmental genes is shared between animals, but it is becoming even more evident that changes in gene regulation rather than changes in gene function may have been involved in the origin of morphological novelties and complexity during animal evolution. The candidate is interested in the study of the Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) family evolution, its regulatio ...

Association of European Marine Biological Laboratories (ASSEMBLE)

Start date: 01 Mar 2009, End date: 31 Oct 2014,

Europe has a very long and distinguished history in Marine Biology and its coastal marine biological stations are the oldest in the world. For example, Stazione Zoologica in Naples (SZN), Station Biologique in Roscoff (SBR) and Kristineberg Marine Research Station in Fiskebäckskil (KMRS) were all established in the late 19th Century. They began an enviable tradition as marine biological research s ...

The use of engineered nanoparticles in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, sensors and many other commercial applications has been growing exponentially over the past decade. EU and Member State’s research into the environmental impact of these materials, particularly in aquatic systems, is at an early stage. ENNSATOX addresses this deficit through a, comprehensive investigation relating the structure and ...
