Plankton Ecology Laboratory
Head: Academician of RAS, Prof. Mikhail Flint
Marine Ecology Department
The main directions of study:
Structure and dynamics of ocean pelagic eco systems (primary production, heterotrophic destruction, phyto– and zooplankton ecology,trophic interactions, detritus fluxes into the deep ocean).
Biota in the marine carbon cycle.
Mesoscale processes in the structure and produc tivity of pelagic ecosystems.
Ecosystem dynamics in the Black Sea with the im pact of human activities and climate change.
