My research aims to study the effects of environmental change on microbial communities in the Baltic Sea. As drivers of biogeochemical cycles and nutrient recycling, such as carbon turnover, the microbial communities are essential in sustaining a functioning ecosystem. To what extent and in what way microbial community composition and diversity patterns respond to environmental change is, however, not well studied in eutrophied, brackish water environments, especially not in the deep waters and sediments of the Baltic Sea. Ecological frameworks from metapopulation and metacommunity theory are used to study and interpret affects and changes in diversity- and biogeographical patterns. Furthermore, I also study links and interactions between microbial communities and other trophic levels (e.g. meiofauna) exposed to environmental variation, another area that still is underexplored.
