The Section of Marine Biology of the Institute of Aquatic Ecology is formed by researchers from two research groups: Marine Resources and Biodiversity (GR MAR) and Sea Ecosystems and Human Health (SeaHealth).
The research group Marine Resources and Biodiversity (GR MAR) is the group GRCT0097 of the University of Girona (UdG) and is composed by researchers of the areas Animal Biology and Plant Biology of the Department of Environmental Sciences of the same university. This research group is affiliated to the Institute of Aquatic Ecology (IEA). Part of the group members belong to recognized research group SGR 1364 Marine Community Ecology and SGR 1297 MedRECOVER. GR MAR is a new and multidisciplinary group, with the research focused on the analysis of the impact of global change and other disturbances resulting from human activities on the marine biodiversity and resources, with the aim to contribute to their conservation. Please check the website of GR MAR for more information.
SeaHealth is an interdisciplinary group formed by marine biologists, physicians, and social science researchers among others, who study the complex relationships between marine ecosystems and human health.
