“Effects of ocean acidification on habitat and organisms in benthic coastal habitat of the Mediterranean Sea” – fellowship offered by the Italian Ministry of Education

Application deadline: 20 October 2016, 12:00 pm The investigation is aimed to analyze the composition, structure and functional traits of the macrobenthic communities (phyto- and zoo benthos) in four sites, located around the coast of the Island of Ischia, characterized by CO2 emissions and therefore natural acidification of the seawaters, and in some sites used […]
