Peter Funch

Associate professor, Department of Bioscience (Ecology and Genetics), Aarhus University

Zoologist Peter Funch is core group member of AURA and studies arthropods and microscopic organisms with a fascination for the diversity of life. One life form he discovered lives on the mouthparts of lobsters; this previously unknown phylum has a complicated life cycle with alternating generations, different free individuals, and distinct asexual and sexual phases. In this project he will investigate the interactions between species and humans in coastal landscapes and the global spread of organisms. Associate Professor of Genetics, Ecology, and Evolution at Aarhus University, his publications can be found at pure.au.dk/portal/en/peter.funch@biology.au.dk
