Kerstin Johannesson

Professor in Marine Ecology, director of the Linnaeus Research Centre in Marine Evolutionary Biology (CeMEB) and coordinator of EU-BONUS research programme BaltGene. Performs research on how new species are formed.
Using snails and macroalga as model organisms I search for the mechanisms that promote the formation of new species using tools from population genetics, ecological genomics and behavioural ecology.

Recent findings include the identification of a recent speciation event in the Baltic Sea – the formation of the endemic macroalgae Fucus radicans, and description of behavioural and ecological mechanisms leading to repeated formation of strongly reproductively isolated ecotypes of the marine snail Littorina saxatilis.
