Biological
interactions

Benthic ecosystems throughout the Southern Ocean are characterized by being unique and highly diversified, whose structure and function are being threatened by rapid global change and anthropogenic impact. Although many benthic communities show some physiological adaptations to cope with changes, their ability to overcome or at least minimize environmental effects, as well as their resilience, largely depend on various interactions (positive and negative) that occur between organisms.

The questions and objectives of this line of research are oriented towards understanding biological interactions and their modulation in new scenarios marked by environmental changes, habitat degradation, the arrival of invasive species and the loss of native diversity.
