Thorsten Reusch

Professor Thorsten Reusch is Head of Marine Ecology and the research unit  Evolutionary Ecology of Marine Fish™ at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany. His main interests are how species and communities may evolutionarily adapt in the face of global change, and how marine organisms generally adapt to extreme environments of lifestyles. For the conservation of marine ecosystem function and to keep the adaptation potential of marine ecosystems, genetic diversity may be as important as species diversity. Thorsten Reusch has an extensive publication record in scientific journals including Nature and Science covering topics from population genetics, invasive species and the evolutionary changes in marine organisms in a changing environment.
