• Conservation and divergence of chemical defense system in the tunicate Oikopleura dioica revealed by genome wide response to two xenobiotics 

      Yadetie, Fekadu; Butcher, Stephen; Førde, Hilde E.; Campsteijn, Coen; Bouquet, Jean-Marie; Karlsen, Odd André; Denoeud, France; Metpally, Raghu; Thompson, Eric M.; Manak, J. Robert; Goksøyr, Anders; Chourrout, Daniel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-02-02)
      Background Animals have developed extensive mechanisms of response to xenobiotic chemical attacks. Although recent genome surveys have suggested a broad conservation of the chemical defensome across metazoans, global gene ...
    • Extreme Levels of Ocean Acidification Restructure the Plankton Community and Biogeochemistry of a Temperate Coastal Ecosystem: A Mesocosm Study 

      Spisla, Carsten; Taucher, Jan; Bach, Lennart T; Haunost, Mathias; Boxhammer, Tim; King, Andrew L; Jenkins, Bettany D.; Wallace, Joselynn R.; Ludwig, Andrea; Meyer, Jana; Stange, Paul; Minutolo, Fabrizio; Lohbeck, Kai T.; Nauendorf, Alice; Kalter, Verena; Lischka, Silke; Sswat, Michael; Dörner, Isabel; Ismar-Rebitz, Stefanie M. H.; Aberle, Nicole; Yong, Jaw C; Bouquet, Jean-Marie; Lechtenbörger, Anna K.; Kohnert, Peter; Krudewig, Michael; Riebesell, Ulf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The oceans’ uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) decreases seawater pH and alters the inorganic carbon speciation – summarized in the term ocean acidification (OA). Already today, coastal regions experience episodic ...
    • Future climate scenarios for a coastal productive planktonic food web resulting in microplankton phenology changes and decreased trophic transfer efficiency 

      Calbet, Albert; Sazhin, Andrey F.; Nejstgaard, Jens Christian; Berger, Stella Angela; Tait, Zachary S.; Olmos, Lorena; Sousoni, Despoina; Isari, Stamatina; Martinez, Rodrigo A.; Bouquet, Jean-Marie; Thompson, Eric; Båmstedt, Ulf; Jakobsen, Hans H. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-04-10)
      We studied the effects of future climate change scenarios on plankton communities of a Norwegian fjord using a mesocosm approach. After the spring bloom, natural plankton were enclosed and treated in duplicates with inorganic ...
