Diversity, sensitivity and resilience of benthic plants to anthropic and natural pressures

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Within the RITMARE project, adaptative responses of benthic plants to anthropic pressure and climatic changes will be studied. Researches will be focused on brown algae (Order Fucales) such as Cystoseira spp. and Sargassum spp. that dominate upper sublittoral communities. These species are particularly sensitive to any natural or anthropogenic stress and therefore they experience deep changes and decline over extensive areas of the Mediterranean Sea. The spatial and temporal distribution of these species will be correlated with environmental forces and their genetic connectivity studied at local and basin scales. The candidate will participate to the sampling diving activities (ARA), will conduct laboratory work, and interact with external research groups.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
