Project discription: Drivers and patterns of thermal tolerance of Greenland marine biota

The project aims to empirically test the hypothesis that temperature tolerance ranges and temperature optima of key species of the Arctic coastal zone depend on the experienced temperature range.

On this basis the project aims to increase the accuracy and resolution of predictions of sensitivity of Arctic marine biota to climate change. The results will be related to thermal responses found elsewhere along the species geographical distribution range.
