Phase, HHU Düsseldorf 1983 PhD in Zoology – Westfälische Wilhelms-University Münster; Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf Fields of interest Effects of climate warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia on marine animals and ecosystems: 1. Physiological, biochemical and molecular mechanisms limiting tolerance and biogeography in invertebrates and fish. Cellular and whole animal energy budgets in various climate regimes. Molecular mechanisms of adaptation and limitation. 2. The concept of oxygen and capacity limited thermal tolerance (OCLTT) as a matrix integrating temperature, oxygen and CO2 effects on marine animals and ecosystems. 3.
