  • "I always think about diatoms"

    [7 Nov 2019] Right now, a conference is ongoing at GU marine field station on Tjärnö, in memory of Professor Anna Godhe who passed away earlier this year. Nearly 60 colleagues from eleven countries have gathered to present and discuss results within Anna Godhe's research area.

  • Fishmeal developed for sustainable aquaculture

    [7 Nov 2019] Aquaculture in Sweden could be more sustainable if by-products from industrial feed production were used instead of wild-caught aquafeed. This is according to studies at the University of Gothenburg.

  • Doctoral Thesis Award goes to Hanna Thomsen

    [4 Nov 2019] The Faculty of Science¿s 2019 Doctoral Thesis Award goes to Hanna Thomsen at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology. Her doctoral thesis is about using light as a tool to study biological mechanisms, from the minutest level to tissue and organisms. The ultimate aim is to develop new pharmaceuticals to combat microbial infections.

  • Prestigious award to evolutionary biologist

    [28 Oct 2019] Professor Roger Butlin at the Department of Marine Sciences has been awarded a ¿Distinguished Fellowship¿ by the European Society for Evolutionary Biology. This is the highest honour the society can confer to individuals, and only four people have been appointed previously.

  • New Calculations Show a Shift in the Arctic Carbon Balance

    [22 Oct 2019] Areas of the Arctic have stored large quantities of carbon in the soil for millennia. However, a new international study published in Nature Climate Change shows that a shift is under way in these permafrost regions. Now Arctic areas emit more carbon into the atmosphere during winter than the vegetation absorbs in summer. In addition, there is a risk of significant increases in emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, of up to 41 per cent, if we do not succeed in curbing our own emissions.

  • Nature as a model in the design of "smart" particles

    [1 Oct 2019] Giovanni Volpe, associate professor of physics at the University of Gothenburg, has received grants to design artificial "organisms" that will be able to perform tasks in groups. The Active Matter Goes Smart project has been awarded SEK 38 million by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

  • Professor Ulf Molau one of the main authors of a new IPCC- report

    [25 Sep 2019] Today, September 25, the UN Climate Panel releases the Ocean and Cryosphere report in a Changing Climate. Swedish report author is Ulf Molau, professor of plant ecology at the University of Gothenburg, who has written the chapter High Mountains about climate change in the mountain ranges.

  • Biologist awarded Research Award 2019

    [23 Sep 2019] The recipient of the Faculty of Science¿s Research Award 2019 is Christine Bacon from the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences. Her research into plant systematics focuses on identifying macroevolutionary patterns by surveying endangered species in tropical rainforests.

  • Pedagogical Award for software that helps with students' learning

    [23 Sep 2019] Professor of Physics Stellan Östlund and Hampus Linander, a systems developer at the Department of Physics, have been named the recipients of the Faculty of Science¿s Pedagogical Award 2019. They are receiving the award for developing software that supports students¿ understanding and provides rapid feedback in their learning process.

  • Smarter birds divide into new species more often

    [13 Sep 2019] A major question in evolutionary biology is whether species´traits can affect how often they form new species. A study published today in the scientific journal Evolution shows that brain size could play such a role in birds.
