Integrated Approaches to Investigate the Role of Soft and Hard Substrate Benthos in Ecosystem Functioning: From Field Observations and Experiments to Modelling and Indicator Development, Corsica (France)

Within this summer school, PhD students and early post-docs will be initiated in experimental methodology to investigate the effect of animal activity on biogeochemical cycling in both sediments and the water column.
Class-room lectures will provide participants with an overview on the recent developments in the research field and will be combined with hands-on experiments on both hard- and soft substrate biogeochemical cycling (optode and electrode techniques, nutrient cycling, bio-irrigation) using state-of-the art experimental equipment.
