Abstract:
The MARBIOL research group performs ecological, taxonomic and phylogeographic research on marine ecosystems and species. Since its foundation, there has been a geographical expansion of the study areas, from the Belgian coast, North Sea and adjacent estuaries to a wider variety of marine habitats, from the tropics to polar systems, including seagrass ecosystems, deep-sea ecosystems such as canyons, cold-water corals, chemo-synthetic-based ecosystems and abyssal plains. At the same time, there has been a significant shift from the initial morphological taxonomic and descriptive ecological studies based on field observations towards process-oriented and functional studies with an experimental, biochemical and molecular approach. The policy-oriented questions regarding sustainable fisheries, deep-sea mining of minerals, marine spatial planning and nature conservation constitute important elements in the valorisation of the fundamental research conducted by the group.

The research mainly focuses on the following topics:
- The study of ecosystems in the deep sea, such as submarine canyons along continental margins, cold-water corals, seeps, hydrothermal vents, polymetallic nodule fields, abyssal plains and the impact of deep-sea mining activities;
- The study of polar offshore and coastal habitats;
- The study of temperate coastal ecosystems (e.g. North Sea and adjacent estuaries), including sandbanks, beaches, seagrass beds and tidal marshes (biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, etc.);
- Marine benthic foodwebs and biogeochemical fluxes;
- Effects of environmental changes and stressors (incl. pollution) on behaviour and physiology of benthic invertebrates and fish, trophic interactions, functional responses traced by trophic biomarkers;
- Foodweb ecology with aquaculture applications;
- Constructing biodiversity databases for ecological modelling and marine spatial planning;
- Taxonomic research and barcoding of marine organisms: a.o. Nematoda and Copepoda (harpacticoid copepods);
- Population genetics and habitat connectivity;
- Evolutionary ecology of marine nematodes and other key marine species;
- Fish migration, behaviour and habitat use;
- Sustainable human use of the coast and sea: marine protected areas, human impact on nature and environment (e.g. beach suppletion, aggregate extraction, contaminants, offshore wind farms, fisheries, etc.);
- Marine spatial planning and nature conservation;
- Invasive species;
- Ecological modelling / habitat mapping.

In the future, the group will further focus on the impact of disturbances (including global climate change) on coastal, deep-sea and polar ecosystems, the importance of biodiversity for marine ecosystem functioning, and ecosystem-based fisheries and its impact on benthic communities.

The MARBIOL yearly trains dozens of master and PhD students in marine sciences (cf. Erasmus mundus IMBRSea, interuniversity MSc programme Oceans and Lakes MARES educational networks). The six main topics are (1) Future oceans: temperature changes – hypoxia – acidification; (2) Understanding biodiversity effects on the functioning of marine ecosystems; (3) Biological invasions; (4) Natural and mineral resources: mining impact, overexploitation, fisheries and aquaculture; (5) Noise pollution in oceans; (6) Habitat loss, urban development, coastal infrastructures and marine spatial planning. The MARBIOL participates in numerous national and international research projects. MARBIOL coordinates the Belgian node of the EMBRC-ERIC, a pan-European Research Infrastructure for marine biology and ecology research.
