I am a researcher at Åbo Akademi University studying marine food webs. I am interested in trophic interactions, particularly relating to the coupling between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, and I am using a number of different coastal ecosystems (Baltic Sea, French Atlantic coast, NE Greenland, southern California, Mediterranean Sea) in my assessments of network structure and trophic processes under environmental change.

    NEW PAPER! We have a new open-access paper out describing the epibenthic invertebrate communities in Northeast Greenland waters. Have a look here: Fredriksen, R., Christiansen, J.S., Bonsdorff, E. et al. Epibenthic megafauna communities in Northeast Greenland vary across coastal, continental shelf and slope habitats.
