Leon Vlieger obtained his master’s degree in evolutionary biology in 2004 at Leiden University, the Netherlands and is currently working as a PhD student at the University of Helsinki. He specialises on the reproductive behaviour of a fish species, the three-spined stickleback, and how this behaviour is affected by eutrophication.
Here are few words by Leon about the presentation:
Blooms of algae in the Baltic Sea are common nowadays, and often lead to closure of beaches. These blooms are caused by pollution of water with nutrients, a problem known as eutrophication. In this talk I will give a general introduction to the environmental problem of eutrophication: what are its causes and consequences, both for humans and sea creatures, and what measures have been taken to combat it? Given my background as a fish biologist I will focus mostly on fish and illustrate my story with examples from the Baltic Sea.
