Research focus
Meyer Lab Our research is focussing on the plasticity of polar pelagic key species (e.g. Krill, Salps Calanus), which have a strong impact on ecosystem functioning, to understand and predict organism shifts and ecosystem response under current and future climate change scenarios.
Palmer Long-Term Ecological Research The Palmer LTER studies a polar marine biome with research focused on the Antarctic pelagic marine ecosystem, including sea ice habitats, regional oceanography and terrestrial nesting sites of seabird predators.
