COMPETENCES AND INVOLVEMENT in GoJelly
TEAM: Dörthe Müller-Navarra and her aquatic ecology team are interested in the role of biochemical resources structuring aquatic food webs. In GoJelly we want to gain a better understanding of observed food web shifts from finfish to jellyfish regimes. To do so we are analyzing natural samples, especially for fatty acids, to biochemically characterize jelly fish populations.
