Research interest
Marine Chemical Ecology

Chemical substances play an important role in the interaction between all living organisms and their environment. The research that considers the impact of naturally occurring substances in the interaction between organisms, is called chemical ecology. Research in chemical ecology in marine environments is still in the beginning of its exploitation and it is reasonable to assume that it has a great potential. Many groups of plankton, algae and sessile animals in the sea produce a variety of different, often unique, types of molecules. These molecules probably function as protection against different kinds of attacks. Chemical signals in water are of vital importance for most organism's behaviour and reproduction, e g settlement of larvae and spores.
