    Feedbacks of the shore-crab (Carcinus maenas) on eelgrass (Zostera marina): Factors to be considered.

    My project focuses on the impact of the shore-crab (Carcinus maenas) on eelgrass. Shore-crabs can have deleterious impacts by preying eelgass seeds and shoots. I will investigate if this behavior is hunger motivated or part of social behavior. Furthermore, I will test if planting high shoot densities can be a mean to coupe with crab damage. I will address this question using laboratory experiments and cages in the field.

    Feedbacks preventing seagrass recovery: the impact of hydrodynamics on sediment resuspension, light reduction and seagrass development

    In my project I am studying how waves affect sediment resuspension, turbidity and light in the presence and absence of the seagrass Zostera marina. In the project I am using a wave flume located at Kristineberg station. I am also doing a review on the causes preventing seagrass restoration.

    Interactions between the invasive Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas and native seagrass Zostera marina

    My master project focuses on two species living in Swedish coastal waters, the native seagrass species Zostera marina and the invasive oyster species Crassostrea gigas. My aims are to establish the degree of coexistence between Crassostrea gigas and Zostera marina along the West Swedish coast; to detect whereas the niches of the two species overlap, in sites they do coexist; and to determine, if the interactions between Z. marina and C. gigas is beneficiary or harmful to the seagrass.

    Seagrass and sediment erosion interactions in Zostera marina and Ruppia maritima

    I am interested in the role of seagrass in reducing sediment erosion by waves. In this study, I use a wave flume to assess how two seagrass species; Zostera marina and Ruppia maritima, influence the erosion of vertical sediment edges. I aim to establish in which environmental factors are more important to reduce erosion of seagrass beds edges, such as biomass, sediment composition and wave exposure.
