Tittel

Ctenophores – native aliens in Norwegian waters

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Ctenophores are known to play important roles in the world’s ocean ecosystems and share physiological attributes that allow them to better exploit the changing environmental conditions than many other zooplankton groups. Yet, they remain neglected in most zooplankton studies and monitoring programs, and are considered one of the most difficult groups of pelagic animals to study; they are fragile and require special sampling and preservation. At the same time, our taxonomical knowledge of ctenophores remains rudimentary at best. Consequently, their diversity and ecological role are grossly oversimplified and misunderstood, leading to biased views of ecosystem functioning. The project aims to describe and document the diversity of ctenophores in Norwegian waters, from the North Sea to the high Arctic. Combining morphological and molecular methods, the project will increase taxonomic knowledge, which is a valuable first step towards establishing a baseline for future ecological studies, monitoring of climate impacts, and assessing the threat of introduced species. By engaging the public audience in collecting samples, the project increases the geographical area coverage and, in return, the laymen involved will come to appreciate completely new aspects of their own environment.
