Abstract:
The Marine Biology unit (BIOMAR) of the Université Libre de Bruxelles focuses on the bio-ecology of marine benthic invertebrates, especially echinoderms. The following aspects are studied: aquaculture, biodiversity, biogeography, biomineralisation, development, ecotoxicology, ecophysiology (including energetics), general biology, nutrition, reproduction and symbioses. The research group is a partner in the Interuniversity Center for Marine Biology (CIBIM).
