The Theoretical Ecology Group is a joint research group of the
University of Bergen,
Uni Research, and the
Institute of Marine Research in
Bergen Marine Research Cluster, hosted by
Department of Biology at
Our aim is to understand how processes at the level of individuals drive dynamics of
populations and communities. We focus on individual trade-offs and use trait-based
models to explain ecological and evolutionary patterns. Please navigate through our pages
to read more about our Research,
our Publications, and us.
We organize weekly Hjort seminars on marine ecosystem dynamics.
The group is well connected and networked. It is a node in the
Nordic Centre of Excellence
NorMER - Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change.
We are also member of the
EU COST action
Conservation Physiology of Marine Fishes.
