Reproduction and development biology

The Reproduction and growth research group works in the following fields:

  • sexual maturation process at molecular, cellular and individual level
  • sexual differentiation, puberty and sexual maturation/spawning biology
  • egg production at individual and stock level for recruitment studies and for estimating spawning stock sizes
  • time-series from the field, and experimental methodology

Key concepts:

Focus on effects of light, temperature, availability of nutrients and environmental toxins/produced water, the effects of underlying mechanisms on interactions between growth and reproduction, and how the allocation of energy to various organs changes in the course of the life-cycle and with condition and the nutritional situation.
