Martin Solan is Professor in Marine Ecology at Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton and the Co-lead investigator of the ChAOS project.
His research focuses on understanding biodiversity-environment interactions and the ecosystem consequences of altered diversity and environmental change in benthic systems.
He has been instrumental in characterising of how species mediate ecosystem properties, respond to drivers of change, and has developed concepts of functional group ecology.
He is a Scientific Committee member of ecoSERVICES (a project of Future Earth) and the Global Environmental Research Committee at the Royal Society.
Within ChAOS, he will oversee experimental investigations of how key invertebrates mediate ecosystem properties.
UK scientists track environmental change on the seafloor of Europe’s Arctic backyard, the Barents Sea
The third and final scientific cruise of the 2018 summer season sails today to the Barents Sea in the Arctic Ocean. As part of the £16 million, UK flagship research programme the Changing Arctic Ocean, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), it supports UK scientists carrying out vital… Read more10 July 2018
