Abstract:
The research group Marine Biology of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel studies tropical marine ecosystems, such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds. The group focuses on molecular ecology (assessment of population connectivity based on genetic methods), molecular phylogenetics (phylogeography, molecular systematics, DNA barcoding for species identification), marine biotechnology (development of DNA microarrays for species identification), marine ecology (multivariate analyses of community structures related to environmental parameters).
