Tuesday 10th of May seven master students from the Marine BioDiversity (MBD) research group presented their projects during a mini symposium. The students presented a broad range of topics ranging from management, deep-sea ecology, biodiversity, taxonomy, systematics, evolution, to functional morphology. They were a mixed group from newly started- to close to the deadline for delivery-students. Still, while some students found it useful as practice for the soon-to-come master’s exam, others used the opportunity to sort and share ideas and thoughts before the start of the project.
