Welcome to the Functional Ecology group at the The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência
We study how organisms use energy and resources in their communities. Our goal is to understand the mechanisms that regulate organismal metabolism and how changes in metabolism affect the functioning of communities. Our lab combines approaches from ecology, eco-physiology and experimental evolution using marine phytoplankton as a model system. Visit our Research page for more info!
