The Marine Mammal Group seeks to document and understand effects of environmental change, pathogens, and human activities on marine mammal abundance, distribution, diversity and speciation processes.

Our research is interdisciplinary with a focus on ancient, environmental and modern DNA analyses, museum collections and observations in the wild.

We teach Marine Mammal Biology and Research, Molecular Ecology, Arctic Biology, and Danish Vertebrate Zoology, and are always looking for new Postdocs, PhDs, MScs and BScs student to join our group.
