Dissertation title: 

Life in the polar oceans: the role of sea ice in the biology and ecology of marine species

Group: Wageningen University, Aquatic Ecology and Water Quality Management
Promotor: Prof.dr. H.J. Lindeboom

Abstract:

A unique feature of the polar oceans is formed by sea ice. This highly dynamic feature forms a habitat for life in the polar ocean. The aims of this thesis were to gain knowledge on the association of marine species with the sea-ice habitat and the functioning of polar marine food webs by assessing the abundance and distribution of species in ice-covered oceans, the important of sea-ice derived carbon sources, and the variability in energy density of marine species.
