Centre for

Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology

From the shoreline to the deep ocean, tackling issues from pure ecology
and physiology to aquaculture, marine spatial planning and conservation.

Mark Hartl

Mark HartlMark Hartl's research activity focuses on marine ecotoxicology, in particular the potential impact of manufactured nanomaterials and chemicals used in offshore oil production on marine organisms. He is also interested in the ecotoxicology of near-shelf deep-sea organisms, the general ecophysiology of benthic organisms, the effects of anthropogenic activity on community structure and the fate of organic and inorganic pollutants in the marine and estuarine environment. Previous projects have involved examining the effect of sediment-associated triorganotin compounds on the osmoregulation of the European flounder (Platichthys flesus), as well as the bioaccumulation capacity for trace metals in bivalves (Macoma balthica).
