Marine Ökologie

 

GAME Partnerinstitute/Netzwerk

- 35 wissenschaftliche Partner in 26 Ländern -

In den vergangenen 15 Jahren hat GAME ein weltumspannendes Netzwerk von Forschungseinrichtungen aufgebaut. Jedes Jahr können bis zu 8 dieser Institute sich zu einem Verbund zusammenschließen und gemeinsam an einer meeresökologischen Fragestellung arbeiten. Die an ihnen ansässigen Wissenschaftler betreuen die Studierenden-Teams und stellen ihnen die notwendige Infrastruktur zur Verfügung. GAME-Partnerinstitute finden sich in fast allen Klimazonen und auf fast allen Kontinenten. Dies erlaubt es Forschungsergebnisse über klimatische und biogeographische Grenzen hinweg zu vergleichen.

Australia

 

  1. Institute: University of Adelaide, Adelaide
    Local tutor: Professor Dr. Sean D. Connell
    Participation: project II

    Adelaide is located on the southern coast of Australia on the Indian Ocean.

  2. Institute: University of Tasmania
    (Department of Zoology), Hobart, Tasmania
    Local tutor: Dr. Alistair Hobday
    Participation: project IV, V

    Tasmania is an island state whose ecosystem evolved separately from the mainland of Australia (itself a unique ecosystem). It is home to flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. With the unique ecosystem and natural environment offered by the island state of Tasmania, the university has very strong programs in biology and geography.

  3. Institute: University of Wollongong, Wollongong
    Local tutor:Professor Dr. Andy Davis
    Participation: project III

    Wollongong is located approximately 40 miles south of Sydney. The coast is characterized by extended sandy beaches with only few sheltered places. The marina in Wollongong and the Port Kembla harbour provide easily accessible and safe resorts for the deployment of the experimental set-ups.

Institute: Universidade Federal Fluminense, Niterói
Local tutor: Professor Dr. Bernardo da Gama
Participation: projectsI, II, III, IV, V, VI, VIIGAME projects, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII

Last update: June 2017

The cities of Rio de Janeiro and Niterói are located at the bay of Guanabara. Due to the high number of people living in this area the waters of the bay are eutrophic. The GAME study site is located on the island of Mocanguê, near the mouth of the bay. A further study site is located 50 miles to the north in Arraial do Cabo where conditions are more natural.

Institute: Université du Québec à Rimouski, Rimouski
Local tutor: Dr. Philippe Archambault
Participation: projects GAME V, VI

Last update: June 2017


Rimouski - The University of Rimouski with its associated ISMER (Institute des Sciences de la Mer de Rimouski) marine biological station is located on the southern shore of the Saint Lawrence River, in the Canadian province of Québec. The distance from here to the river’s outlet into the Northern Atlantic is about 300 kilometres. The shore is characterized by bedrock and a considerable tidal range, which results in an ecosystem which offers excellent research opportunities for experimental ecologists. GAME teams working here are tutored by Dr Philippe Archambault.

Chile

Institute: Universidad Católica del Norte, Coquimbo
Local tutor: Professor Dr. Martin Thiel
Participation: projects I, II, III, IV, V, VIVIII, IX, X, XI, XII, XIII, XV

Last update: June 2017


Coquimbo is situated around a circular bay about 500 km north of the capital Santiago de Chile. Due to upwelling processes along the central Chilean coast the system is highly productive.

Institute: University of Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle
Local tutor: Dr. Jeremy Thomason
Participation: projects I, II, III, IV,

Last update: June 2017


Newcastle upon Tyne is located near the north-east coast of England, which is characterised by strong tides and rough conditions. Thus, the marina in Hartlepool provides an apt and sheltered study site for the GAME experiments.

Egypt

Institute: Alexandria University, Alexandria
Local tutor: Professorin Dr. Khadiga Adham
Participation: project IV

Last update: June 2017


Experiments took place in Alexandria, a city of four millions, in a tranquil part of the harbour. In contrast to the otherwise oligotrophic Mediterranean the whole harbour is highly eutrophised due to numerous sewage dischargers. Aufwuchs-communities therefore grow rapidly and are very productive. The most dominant organism was the tube building worm Serpula vermicularis.
