This biennial report for the years
2011-2012 covers an exciting phase
of transformation at the ZMT. It begins
with the first full year in office of the
four new professors, who subsequently
became the heads of the newly defined
research departments with their individual
workgroups. These are also the first two
years of my time as the director of the
ZMT.

As two of the new professors are
jointly appointed with the private Jacobs
University Bremen, scope for new
regional cooperation is being created.
The arrival of the professors brought
with it also new investments in research
infrastructure, the highlight in 2011 being
the opening of the Marine Experimental
Ecology Facility (MAREE), which offers a
flexible infrastructure to simultaneously
study marine organisms under a range
of controlled environmental conditions.
The MAREE is proving also exceedingly
popular for tours offered to the interested
public. The opening of the thin-section
laboratory and installation of the new
scanning electron microscope with its
3D-tomographic imaging capacity were
further highlights.
A revision of the ZMT’s research
programme, which forms the basis for
allocation of the institute’s core-budget,
led to refinement of the major research
questions. Under the third programme
area “coordination”, a directorate fulfilling
mostly science management tasks
was formed. Two main drives over the
reporting period were directed at raising
and diversifying the ZMT’s third-party
funding record and raising the publication
output. Both drives were successful and
while the continued funding of the SPICEprogramme in Indonesia for a third phase
by the Federal Ministry of Education and
Research (BMBF) is a highlight in itself,
we are pleased to note that various
other applications were successful as well,
including the proposal for the LeibnizGraduate School SUTAS.
Additional funding brings with it a growing
number of research staff. It is especially
the Ph.D. student numbers, which have
gone up while the student body has
become even more international. At the
same time, the ZMT has advertised three
new joint-professorships in cooperation
with the University of Bremen, as well as
two junior research groups.
The ZMT is asserting its place in the
global and regional research community,
and the institute as a whole can be
proud about what has been achieved
over these two years of the reporting
period. More can be expected from the
ZMT in the next few years and we are
looking forward to the first evaluation
of the institute as a full member of the
Leibniz Association in May 2013. The
new professors will be appointed and
their groups established. The first of
the new Ph.D. students following the
guidelines defined in 2010 will complete
their research. Interdisciplinarity remains
an exciting challenge at the ZMT, and
the institute is well prepared for the
current and upcoming research questions
of societal importance in the field of
sustainability and ecology of tropical
coastal areas.

Expedition to the Galapagos Islands
For the first time, a ZMT expedition to the Galapagos Islands
investigated the effect of increasing CO2 on marine organisms.
As the archipelago is surrounded by the least alkaline waters of
the tropics, it serves as a natural laboratory for studying ocean
acidification, a central theme of research at the ZMT.
Science ship MS Wissenschaft on tour
As part of Science Year 2012 the Federal Ministry of Education
and Research (BMBF) initiated an exhibition on research for
sustainability on „MS Wissenschaft“. The ZMT participated with a
newly designed exhibit of a computer model showing the impact
of human activities on reefs. On May 30th, the exhibition, that
visited various German harbours, was ceremonially opened by
the Federal Minister Annette Schavan in Berlin.
Trainees at the ZMT
As of September 1st, the ZMT offers vocational training to four
young trainees. The programme qualifies young people for
their professional working careers. The trainees were strongly
attracted by the international environment at the ZMT and
the unique opportunity to combine their interest in the natural
and environmental sciences with their professional training in IT,
library services and administration.

Research and Capacity Building
Tropical coastal ecosystems are exceptionally productive habitats and therefore
of high ecological and economic importance. At the same time they are particularly
vulnerable and under strong pressure. The ZMT contributes to the understanding of the
fundamental processes in tropical coastal ecosystems and the development of concepts
for an integrated, sustainable management. The years 2011 and 2012 saw major
developments and activities promoting new structures at the ZMT. A reorganisation
of the departmental structure was followed by the development of new concepts for
the ZMT’s strategies on the intensification of exchange and cooperation, for thirdparty funding acquisition and capacity building. Routines and guidelines were revised to
optimise processes including the training of doctoral students.
Research at the ZMT focused on its long term research projects in cooperation with
universities and research institutions in Indonesia (SPICE), China (LANCET, BEIBU)
and southern Africa (GENUS). These projects address the function, human use and
deterioration of coastal and marine systems. Two of the bilateral research programmes
financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), in which the
ZMT is substantially involved - SPICE and GENUS - were successfully evaluated and
extended for a period of three years starting in 2012. A new geographical target
area is the Eastern Tropical Pacific with projects located in the Galapagos Archipelago
and in Central America (Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Colombia). A Memorandum of
Understanding was signed in autumn 2012 to revivify research work in the Red Sea.
In March 2011, the Supervisory Board approved the new structure with its four
research departments and appointed their heads for an initial five years: Hildegard
Westphal for the Department of Biogeochemistry and Geology, Agostino Merico for
the Department of Ecological Modelling, Christian Wild for the Department of Ecology
and Achim Schlüter for the Department of Social Sciences. The departments provide
the frame for currently 16 workgroups, including two junior research groups and a
Leibniz Chair. A step towards the implementation of the future research agenda of
the ZMT is the appointment of three new professors jointly with the University of
Bremen. These professorships will be filled in 2013 in the areas of Mangrove Ecology,
Ecotoxicology and Social Sciences.
In order to encourage young postdocs to develop their leadership skills and broaden
the range of expertise available at the ZMT, the institute advertised two junior research
groups, one broadly in the field of tropical marine ecology (a candidate from marine
microbiology was selected) and another on the ecology of seagrass and algae. Both
groups include funding for a postdoc position, a Ph.D. student and consumables. A third
junior research group on tropical sea level change was applied for in collaboration with
the University of Bremen under the third funding line of the Excellence Initiative.
To support the institute´s management and Supervisory Board in relation to major
research-related topics an internal Scientific Council was established in 2012. The ZMT’s
ombudsman, nominated for the first time in 2011 and in charge of overseeing the
institute’s compliance with the Rules of Good Scientific Practice, is currently a member
of the Council.
Research activities at the ZMT are accompanied by measures on capacity building in
the field of tropical marine ecology. The ZMT’s scientists teach mainly at the University
of Bremen and at Jacobs University Bremen, but also at other German universities.
In addition they supervise a growing number of students at all academic levels. New
investment in laboratory infrastructure and successful grant applications have multiplied
student numbers and proven attractive to early career scientists. In 2011 and 2012,
17 doctoral theses, 55 diploma and master´s theses and 6 bachelor´s theses were
completed. Other capacity building activities included special training courses, summer
schools and on-the-job training, offered both in Bremen and in partner countries.
The Programme Budget
The institute´s first Programme Budget, providing a thematic research framework,
covered the year 2011. It was revised during the reporting period in adaptation to
timely research questions and new expertise gained by the ZMT. The new programme
areas with their subareas are:
1. Ecosystem functioning and services
• Tropical upwelling systems as resource providers and analogues for global change
• Impact of stressors on engineering organisms - consequences for ecosystem services
2. Ecosystem management and stakeholders
• Terrestrial impact on coastal social-ecological systems
• Drivers of coastal and marine area management and protection
3. Coordination
• Capacity Building
• Research Infrastructure
• Science Management

Leibniz Chair
Strategic Workshops
In November 2011 the ZMT
established its first Leibniz Chair. This
title is bestowed upon an outstanding
scientific personality whose expertise
complements the ones existing at the
institute and which will add an important
perspective to research at the ZMT.
The title is awarded for three years
and comes endowed with funding
for a Ph.D. position and consumables.
During this time the Chair continues
to hold their position elsewhere, but
regular visits and the Ph.D. student at the
ZMT hold the connection. The Leibniz
Chair was granted to the socio-cultural
anthropologist Bettina Beer at the ZMT´s
20th anniversary celebration.
Bettina Beer is a professor and the
Department Chair of Ethnology at the
University of Lucerne in Switzerland.
Field studies consisting of long stays in
the various regions under investigation
and participation in the life of the local
communities are the central empirical
methods in ethnology. Bettina Beer will
contribute to the research approaches
at the ZMT with a comprehensive
understanding of human perceptions,
emotionality and the handling of
knowledge. With her previous research in
South-East Asia, Bettina Beer has gained
extensive expertise in a key geographical
focus area of the ZMT. The Ph.D. student
commenced work on her project at the
ZMT in May 2012.
Starting in 2011, the ZMT has
organised retreats for its workgroup
leaders and a series of dedicated
workshops, which have accompanied
the discussion on the institute´s research
strategy and the initiation of new
collaborations.
Workshop ”Quo vadis social science”
(May 2011)
The aim of the workshop with renowned
social scientists from German and foreign
research institutions was to identify
important topics beyond the ZMT’s
expertise and to discuss a recruitment
strategy for the new professorship
within the Social Science Department
at the ZMT. Participants recommended
searching for a candidate who strengthens
the ZMT strategy of working at the
micro- to meso-level and has experience
in interdisciplinary work with natural and
social scientists.
Mini-symposium ”Evolution of cooperation in
social-ecological systems”
(September 2011)
This symposium that was co-organized
with the University of Bremen covered
different aspects of theoretical and
experimental cooperation studies: from
evolutionary game theory, which models
interactions from an individual point of
view, to the ecological, resource-based
theories and experiments, which include
environmental features such as the
existence of limited resources.
Workshop ”Acidification –
a problem in the tropics?”
(November 2011)
Ocean acidification is a topic of growing
importance for the ZMT research
agenda. The institute is well qualified
to carry out promising research in this
field because of its long experience in
the biogeochemistry and ecology of
coral reef systems. This expertise has
been recently expanded into other
relevant disciplines such as carbonate
sedimentology and biogeochemical
modelling. Also, the institute fulfils all the
prerequisites for taking a leading role
in understanding the socioeconomic
implications of ocean acidification. To
foster discussion and promote potential
collaborative projects the ZMT invited
leading international scientists to present
and debate the problems associated with
ocean acidification with a particular focus
on tropical regions.
Symposium “Galapagos – laboratory for the
study of climate and anthropogenic forcing”
(May 2012)
With its special oceanographic conditions,
the Galapagos Archipelago constitutes a
natural observatory for future scenarios
showing the influences of environmental
changes on marine ecosystems. In
May 2012, the ZMT invited Galapagos
researchers from Europe and overseas
to discuss new research approaches.
Galapagos is regarded as a model for
biocenoses, which are under the influence
of increasing CO2 uptake of the oceans.
Thus, one focus was on the impact of
ocean acidification on calcifying organisms.
Other foci included the effect of climate
oscillations on the Galapagos ecosystems,
as well as questions regarding the
management of their natural riches.
Marine Experimental Ecology Facility (MAREE)
The completion of the MAREE,
the new facility for marine experimental
ecology, in January 2011, marks the
beginning of a new era of experimental
science at the ZMT. The facility provides
a platform for carrying out perturbation
experiments under controlled conditions.
Different kinds of experimental set-ups
can be realised by using the flexible
14
infrastructure that represents a crossing
between a modern biological laboratory
and an aquatic facility. With the MAREE,
the ZMT is well prepared to scientifically
tackle several of today’s pressing topics,
such as coral bleaching, community shifts
in coastal ecosystems or aquaculturerelated tasks and problems.
15
Research and Capacity Building
Research and Capacity Building
Three major research lines are being
followed within the MAREE. One is
to supplement ecological field studies
by indoor experiments. A major goal
is to investigate ecophysiological key
parameters to gain a better understanding
of how tropical coastal ecosystems
function and how they respond to
individual and combined stressors such
as rising water temperature, ocean
acidification or eutrophication. A second
line of research is to study single species
to identify threshold values or tipping
points for selected environmental
parameters. The third research line
investigates the culture and breeding
of selected marine species including
key ecosystem engineers, economically
valuable sea cucumbers and ornamental
fish.
ZMT’s Structured Ph.D. Programme
Teaching and training of young
academics is a fundamental task at the
ZMT. The research work of Ph.D. students
is an important component of the
scientific activities. In light of the specific
research requirements at the institute and
to ensure a high quality performance and
an intensive interdisciplinary exchange
among its young researchers, the ZMT
has developed its own structured Ph.D.
programme. The programme, which has
been laid out as a guideline, provides
students and supervisors with the
necessary information to ensure best
practice in the management of the Ph.D.
research process and a successful thesis
defence.
The guidelines were produced in
consultation with students and supervisors
from the ZMT and are inspired by
standard national and international
Ph.D. guiding principles. They are used
16
in concert with the regulations of the
degree-granting University of Bremen
and Jacobs University Bremen. The
programme started in June 2011 and has
been successfully implemented. A Ph.D.
study coordinator ensures the proper
administrative implementation of the
programme while Agostino Merico acts as
the programme’s scientific coordinator.
Leibniz Graduate School: Sustainable Use of Tropical Aquatic Systems (SUTAS)
As of October 2011, the institute has
implemented an annual workshop for
all scientists involved in the supervision
of Ph.D. students to stimulate effective
discussions concerning postgraduate
training quality with a particular focus on
scientific methods and goals.
In November 2012, the ZMT was
awarded funding for a new graduate
school in the internal Leibniz Association
competition. The graduate school
SUTAS promotes structured, high-level
interdisciplinary graduate training in the
field of tropical coastal system research. It
supports early career scientists by linking
them to a national and international
network of researchers and institutions.
The spectrum of research disciplines
represented in SUTAS includes marine
biology, fisheries science, sedimentology,
microbiology, sociology, economics,
modelling and epidemiology.
Thus, a substantiated basis is provided to
tackle pressing questions of coastal zone
ecology, management and human health
in the tropics. Groups of students from
different disciplines will work together in
regional focus areas. For the first round of
the programme, which starts in March
2013, several Ph.D. positions are offered
for interdisciplinary research in Zanzibar.
Incoming Ph.D. students with related
research interests are invited to enrol in
SUTAS.
SUTAS offers a structured programme
comprising student seminars, summer
schools, specific disciplinary as well
as soft skill training, and research
presentations at the ZMT and partner
institutions. The Ph.D. panel supports a
stringent and advised progress leading
to successful graduation within three
years. Main programme features will be
of considerable value to the participating
students: a large number of experts
available from the SUTAS Consortium
offer a deeply rooted disciplinarity; the
opportunity to gain interdisciplinary
experience and cultural literacy is
facilitated by the design of the Ph.D.
projects.
The ZMT intends to implement the
graduate school as a permanent institution
and relocate the focus area after the first
four years to another region of major
interest to the ZMT. SUTAS is managed
and coordinated by the ZMT. Research
and training are conducted jointly with
the universities of Bremen and Oldenburg,
the Jacobs University Bremen, the BIPS
(Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research
and Epidemiology in Bremen) and the
Leibniz Institut Senckenberg am Meer
in Wilhelmshaven, as well as partner
institutions in the target countries.

GLOMAR
The ZMT is a co-applicant of the
Bremen International Graduate School for
Marine Sciences „Global Change in the
Marine Realm“ (GLOMAR). The Graduate
School draws on the outstanding research
capacity in the field of marine research
in the state of Bremen with participants
from the University of Bremen, the ZMT,
the Max Planck Institute for Marine
Microbiology, the Alfred Wegener Institute
for Polar and Marine Research and the
German Maritime Museum. Beginning in
2006, it has been funded by the German
Research Foundation and the Federal
Ministry of Education and Research under
the Excellence Initiative. In 2012 a
successful follow-up application was
submitted as part of the Excellence
Cluster MARUM. Currently, 15 Ph.D.
students of the ZMT are participating in
the GLOMAR programme.
Center for Sino-German Cooperation in Marine Sciences
The ZMT has been coordinating the
Sino-German initiative on marine sciences
on behalf of the University of Bremen
since 2004. The activities contributed to
the implementation of a joint Englishlanguage graduate programme in marine
sciences and to intensification of scientific
exchange between the Ocean University
of China (OUC) in Qingdao with German
universities in Bremen and Kiel and their
affiliated research institutions.
On 24 February 2011 the Ocean
University of China, the University of
Bremen, the Leibniz Center for Tropical
Marine Ecology, the University of Kiel
18
and the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean
Research Kiel formalised their cooperation
in the ”Center for Sino-German
Cooperation in Marine Sciences (SGMS)”
based in the coastal town of Qingdao,
China. The SGMS enhances the visibility of
previous and current activities by bundling
the different forms of collaboration and
promoting cooperation and networking
activities among marine research
institutions in China and Germany. The
management of the SGMS is shared
jointly between the OUC and partners in
Bremen and Kiel.

Science for the Protection of Indonesian Coastal Ecosystems – SPICE III
Duration: 2012 – 2015
Partner Country: Indonesia
Main Partners: Universities and research institutions in Germany (Aachen, Bremen, Göttingen, Hamburg, Hannover, Jena, Kiel,
Oberpfaffenhofen, Rostock, Sylt, Warnemünde) and Indonesia (Badung – Bali, Bandung, Banda Aceh, Bogor, Jakarta, Makassar,
Pekanbaru, Purwokerto, Yogyakarta)
Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Details: Research programme with six cooperative projects, coordinated by the ZMT. The ZMT conducts its own research
as part of five of these clusters.
SPICE, the bilateral German-Indonesian research programme,
started in 2003 under the coordination of the ZMT. The
overarching goal of the SPICE programme is to address the
scientific, social and economic issues related to the management
of the Indonesian coastal ecosystems and their resources.
The region is a centre of biodiversity with highly productive
ecosystems, which are under enormous pressure from rapid
social and economic changes. In addition to the strengthening
of the existing scientific database on coastal ecosystems, the
programme promotes capacity and infrastructure building in
the marine sector in Indonesia and Germany. SPICE contributes
substantially towards fulfilling regional and international
obligations of the two countries as entailed in international
conventions and treaties.
Following successful phases I and II and an evaluation in 2010, the
Indonesian-German Steering Committee on Earth and Ocean
Science recommended the continuation of the programme.
In February 2011, the BMBF launched an open call. Submitted
proposals were reviewed internationally and top proposals
approved by the BMBF. The overall coordination of the
programme on the German side was once again assigned to the
ZMT, which works on several projects.
In May 2012, the ZMT organised a kick-off workshop to
concretise project aims and their implementation. It brought
together scientists from Germany and Indonesia planning to
cooperate in SPICE III. Hosted by the Indonesian Ministry of
Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) the SPICE III programme was
eventually launched in Jakarta on the 25th of September 2012
and presented to a wider audience.
20
The new programme, SPICE III, primarily focuses on goals, which
are in concordance with a national action plan developed in
Indonesia: a holistic approach to the management of marine
resources takes the entire ecosystem into consideration, targets
the successful management of marine areas and investigates
adaptation to the consequences of climate change. Six research
topics were jointly agreed upon by the Indonesian Steering

Land-Sea Interactions along Coastal Ecosystems of Tropical
China: Hainan – LANCET
Duration: 2006 – 2011
Partner Country: China
Main Partners: Universities in Germany (Bremen, Hamburg) and China (Shanghai, Qingdao), research institutes in China (Haikou, Hangzhou)
Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Details: Integrated project with five subprojects coordinated by the ZMT. The ZMT conducts three subprojects.
The bilateral Chinese–German project LANCET, which
is coordinated by the ZMT, ended in December 2011. The
project was positively evaluated by the BMBF during a synthesis
workshop at the East China Normal University in Shanghai
in September of the final year. The scientists presented their
results from the two project phases. The workshop also served
as a platform for follow-up activities in the region, which were
welcomed by the funding institutions on both sides.
LANCET was initiated in 2006 to improve understanding of
land-sea interactions on the tropical island of Hainan in the
South China Sea. Individual subprojects addressed issues in
marine botany, reef ecology, fisheries biology, marine chemistry,
biogeochemistry and physical oceanography. Between 2006 and
2009, four joint expeditions were conducted along the northeast
coast of Hainan. The investigated area included the typical
tropical habitats: mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and coral
reefs, as well as small rivers and their estuaries.
Scientific results from the analysis of samples and data collected
during the expeditions indicate several major impairments. The
Wenchang / Wenjiao estuary, as well as the back-reef areas along
Hainan’s northeast coast are strongly affected by effluents from
22
abundant aquaculture ponds. During heavy rains and especially
during typhoon events, a strong, pulsed export of nutrients,
organic matter and sediments from the agriculture-dominated
watershed add to causing eutrophic conditions in the coastal
waters resulting in a negative impact on seagrass meadows.
Overfishing in the estuaries and coastal waters is a further acute
problem of the area.
Results from a coral core (Porites lutea) indicate an increase
in the annual colony growth over the past 30 years. Higher
temperatures and a higher nutrient availability due to upwelling
seem to favour coral growth, particularly during ENSO (El
Niño-Southern Oscillation) years. Thereby, the growth-inhibiting
effects of ocean acidification could likely be compensated for. In
general, the reefs at the northeast coast of Hainan are, however,
not in a good state, which is mainly due to local impacts such
as eutrophication and destructive fishing techniques. During
the workshop in September specific recommendations for
a sustainable management of Hainan’s coastal zone were
developed and will be communicated to decision makers.

Geochemistry and Ecology of the Namibian Upwelling System – GENUS
Duration: 2009 – 2015
Partner Countries: Namibia, South Africa, Angola
Main Partners: National Marine Information and Research Centre, Swakopmund; University of Namibia, Windhuk; Department of
Environmental Affairs, Cape Town; Instituto Nacional de Investigação Pesqueiro, Luanda, Angola
Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Details: Joint project, coordinated by the Universities in Bremen and Hamburg. The ZMT conducts two subprojects.
The GENUS programme aims to clarify and model the
relationships between climate change, biogeochemical cycles,
and ecosystem structure in the upwelling system of the
northern Namibian Coast. GENUS is an endorsed project of
the Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research
(IMBER).
Upwelling systems are highly productive marine ecosystems,
which supply a significant part of the worldwide fish landings and
play a central role in the livelihood of the coastal population. The
coastal upwelling system on the shelf off Namibia underlies high
seasonal and interannual variability in atmospheric conditions, in
properties of water masses, and in oxygen supply and demand
on the shelf. In consequence, concentrations and ratios of
nutrients in upwelling water and their CO2 content evidence
steep gradients in space and time. Significant and economically
severe changes in ecosystem structure have been observed
over the past decades. They are partly attributed to long-term
and large-scale changes in physical processes that impact the
whole ecosystem by changing the oxygen conditions in the water
column among other effects.
24
After an excellent evaluation, the BMBF sent the research
programme into a second three-year phase starting in May
2012. While the project focused on the coast off Namibia in
its first phase, the research area will now be extended to the
North and South. The ZMT takes part in the new GENUS phase
with two subprojects, which are dedicated on the one hand to
biogeochemical aspects, on the other hand to the marine life in
the upwelling system off Namibia.
The biogeochemical investigations examine the impacts of
climate change on the so called biological pump through which
carbon is transported from the surface to the deep ocean.
The biological subproject investigates the interrelationship
between the qualitative and quantitative composition of the
ichthyoplankton and juvenile fish community and their trophic
position and importance in the pelagic ecosystem. Several
expeditions on research vessels and experimental work in
the culturing facilities of the ZMT and the partner institutes
in Swakopmund (Namibia) and Cape Town (South Africa) are
planned. In physiological laboratory experiments the impact of
temperature and oxygen on the performance of early life-stages
of fish will be analysed.

The Role of Mangroves for the Biogeochemical Fluxes into the Coastal
Ecosystems of the Gulf of Beibu under Anthropogenic Change – BEIBU
Duration: 2009 – 2012
Partner Country: China
Main Partners: Guangxi Mangrove Research Center and Guangxi Marine Environment and Coastal Wetland Research Center, Beihai
Funding: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Details: Subproject of the joint project „Status of the Marine Environment of the Gulf of Beibu (South China Sea), and Development
during the Holocene through Alternating Natural and Anthropogenic Influences“, coordinated by the Leibniz Institute for
Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW)
Located in the northwestern part of the South China Sea,
the Gulf of Beibu is subject to human influence from densely
populated areas of China and Vietnam. Focal point of this
subproject is the Nan Liu River Basin and its estuary located in
the Guangxi Province. A major aim was to assess the quantity
and composition of dissolved and particulate matter fluxes along
the land - sea continuum with special emphasis on the role of
local mangroves.
with data from Chinese literature revealed that over the last
two decades phosphate inputs have increased, probably due
to changes in land use and enhanced phosphatic (P) fertiliser
application. This additional P input furthers the eutrophication
effect in the region and allows for higher algal production. Should
this trend continue, coastal waters of the Gulf of Beibu might
face a higher risk of harmful algal blooms in the future.
Results have shown that anthropogenic activity, mainly intensive
agriculture in the hinterland, but also livestock and wide spread
aquaculture is most evident in high dissolved inorganic nitrogen
(DIN) inputs into the Nan Liu River and its estuary. DIN is an
essential nutrient for phytoplankton and is a major factor of
eutrophication worldwide. Due to the strong tides in the area a
high proportion of these inputs are exported further offshore,
making the Nan Liu an important source of this ecologically
critical nutrient for the northern Gulf of Beibu. A comparison
The area-specific filtration capacity of the Nan Liu mangroves
is comparable to other mangrove forests. However, due to the
deforestation of most of the mangroves during recent decades,
the total natural capacity of the estuarine mangroves to remove
nutrient inputs from human activity is negligible. Thus, mangroves
currently play no important role in the estuary’s nutrient
dynamic, which is dominated by hydrological factors such as
river runoff, tidal mixing and uptake by phytoplankton in coastal
waters.

Science Management
Directorate
The arrival of the new director and department
heads by the end of 2010 provided a major impetus for the
implementation of a new research structure at the ZMT, to
rethink agendas and identify new research targets geographically
and topic-wise. The directorate forms a central unit that
supports ZMT-internal processes including the advancement of
the research strategy, workshop and conference organisation,
coordination of the Ph.D. programme and the graduate school,
and coordinates all internal and external board meetings. It also
supports international and national networking, organises science
conferences and institutional meetings, and accompanies the
science policy activities of the ZMT, e.g. in the KDM (German
Marine Research Consortium).
Third party funding is an important pillar of the ZMT and
application activities are supported by the directorate. The
directorate also undertakes constant monitoring for relevant
research calls, networking and active representation of the ZMT
at the European Union by raising the voice for tropical marine
science. Since March 2012, the directorate has also assumed the
task of coordinating the preparation of the Leibniz evaluation
that will take place in May 2013.
Science Management
Public Relations
The public relations office regularly supplies information
to the media and the online scientific news service IDW, and
takes care of requests from the media. Media interest focused
mainly on outstanding articles on biodiversity in coral reefs,
on the role of mangroves in carbon cycling, the successful
ornamental breeding programme of the ZMT featuring the
new marine experimental ecology facility (MAREE), and on the
20th anniversary of the institute. Interviews with experts from
the ZMT and features on its projects were broadcasted among
others in ARTE, ZDF, 3sat, Radio Bremen TV or Deutsche Welle
TV. A recent addition to the ZMT’s portfolio is a biannual
newsletter edited by an external journalist agency in order
to tease interest in ZMT’s activities by short and pointed
information. A report on the BIOVIBEN project on Vibrio
cholerae in West Bengal appeared in the widely circulated Journal
of the Leibniz Association. On the whole, demands from the
media for ZMT expertise and broadcasts with participation of
the institute´s scientists are on the rise and a particular highlight
in 2012 was an appearance in the ZDF’s main national news
broadcast.
With two comprehensive projects, the ZMT contributed to the
“Science Year 2012: Project Earth”: an interactive exhibit based
on a computer model from the modelling department was
28
developed for an exhibition on the vessel “MS Wissenschaft”.
It illustrates the impact of deleterious factors on coral reef
growth and will also be shown in other exhibitions. The other
project, a co-operation with the Media Studies Department at
the University of Bremen and the International School, focused
on childrens´ approach to research through film-production.
Supervised by a Ph.D. student, the pupils tackled the issue of
ocean acidification in the MAREE facilities.
Furthermore, the ZMT took an active part in a variety of public
events by giving talks to the general public in the ”Haus der
Wissenschaft”, in the frame of the ”Maritime Woche an der
Weser” and the ”Slow Fish” Fair, as well as in museums. During
the ”WissensWerte 2011”, the annual congress for science
journalists, the ZMT participated in the project ”Wissensregion
Nordwest goes Media” by presenting its research and offering an
excursion for journalists to the institute. For pupils, workshops,
lectures and guided tours were organised.
The website was reorganised and adapted to the new structure
of the ZMT. An increased flow of news on the welcome
page and a newly installed page featuring expedition blogs are
designed to raise the interest of the public.

The carbon cycle is strongly tied to the cycle of essential nutrients such as nitrogen
and phosphorus. Today, as a consequence of human activities carbon and nutrients
accumulate in the environment, and the fluxes between and the storage of carbon
and nutrients within their reservoirs are strongly influenced. The group sees its task
in studying processes through which organisms influence their environment and
ecosystems respond to climate changes and perturbations of the carbon and nutrient
cycles. Preferential working areas are regions characterised by high turnover rates of
carbon, such as coastal upwelling systems in the Pacific, Atlantic, and northern Indian
Ocean, as well as tropical peatlands in Indonesia.
One of the main research projects is concerned with the issue of ocean acidification.
The Costa Rican Pacific coast is partly affected by corrosive waters that well up along
the coast and periodically expose reefs to pH values lower than usual. Of special
interest is the study of the adaptation of coral reefs and crustose coralline algae to
these natural changes. This will improve predictions on the future of coral reefs and will
help with designing appropriate management strategies. The project started in 2012,
first results showed surprisingly high growth rates of the main reef building coral species
in spite of the high CO2 levels in the water.
In the frame of the GENUS project, the carbonate chemistry was studied within the
Benguela Upwelling System. There, the CO2 uptake by the marine organic carbon pump
is assumed to increase because of the weakening of the mid-water formation at the
subantarctic zone and a strengthening of the coastal upwelling systems. This could be
driven by global warming, which strengthens the organic carbon pump. In SPICE III the
group coordinates Topic 2 “Carbon sequestration in the Indonesian Seas and its global
significance”. The aim of this project is to quantify and value the carbon storage in and
the CO2 emission from the Indonesian Seas caused by declining coastal ecosystems.
The data will provide the scientific base for the development of sustainable mitigation
strategies.
Feedback mechanisms to the carbon cycle caused by the impact of the monsoon on
silicate weathering on land are currently studied within the project CARIMA, which is
funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). First results indicate
that changes in monsoon intensities influence chemical weathering rates on land.

Tropical coasts harbour some of the most productive and diverse ecosystems on earth
like coral reefs, mangrove forests and seagrass meadows. They receive a major part of
the annual riverine inputs of freshwater and dissolved and particulate substances and
are among the regions with the strongest human modifications. The group investigates
the biogeochemical and ecological response of tropical coastal systems to present
and past environmental change, focussing on: (1) terrestrial influences on coastal
systems of the tropics – natural versus anthropogenic factors; (2) interaction of biota
with the abiotic environment; and (3) reconstruction of past ecosystem response to
environmental change.
from households and effluents from an oil refinery result in contamination with organic
pollutants other than those usually measured. Within Topic 4 of SPICE III, research in the
Segara Anakan Lagoon will be continued.
The group’s activities in Brazil concluded with a project dealing with the impact of sugar
cane cultivation on tropical lagoons and estuaries along the eastern coast of Brazil. The
overall results suggest that biogeochemical and ecological response patterns to cultural
eutrophication do not only vary between climate zones, but can also be land-use
specific.
Embedded in the collaborative project CARIMA, a large-scale programme on „Tibet
and central Asia: Monsoon Geodynamics and Geoecosystems“ started in 2011. It
investigates the contribution of human-induced changes in the Pearl River catchment to
changes in monsoon dynamics.
The regional focus of research and education activities is now in South and Southeast
Asia. Studies conducted in the frame of the SPICE II programme investigated the
sources and fate of nutrients and particulate organic matter in estuaries and lagoons
on the island of Java: The Brantas River estuary receives high loads of nutrients and
organic matter from one of the most densely populated regions in the world, leading
to eutrophication and oxygen depletion in the coastal waters. The Segara Anakan
Lagoon is similarly affected, but there the much larger remaining mangroves have a
profound effect on carbon and nutrient cycling. In the Eastern part, wastewater input

Based on results of modern-day studies from the previous years palaeo-reconstruction
of ecosystem response to environmental change was intensified. The BIORESICO
project aims at reconstructing the biogeochemical response of Indonesian coastal
ecosystems to environmental change during the late Quaternary, as recorded by marine
sediment cores along the Sumatra – Java – Flores transect.

Geoecology and Carbonate Sedimentology
Workgroup leader:
Prof. Dr. Hildegard Westphal
Organisms that secrete carbonate, like scleractinian corals, bivalves, echinoderms
or calcifying algae, are important constituents of shallow-water ecosystems in the
tropical seas. They shape their environment by building frameworks like coral reefs
and provide habitats for a high variety of organisms. Also, they produce large portions
of the sediment in these ecosystems. The sedimentology group studies the effects
of environmental changes on calcification and carbonate sediment production. The
group focuses on acidification and eutrophication, which are among the most severe
environmental factors affecting carbonate-secreting biotic communities.
In close cooperation with the departments of ecology and ecological modelling, the
sedimentology group is studying the effects of acidification on tropical coastal systems,
focussing on the impacts on skeletal structure and the composition of carbonatesecreting communities. Investigations are performed both in the field, e.g. in Galapagos
and Costa Rica, and in the laboratory (MAREE), where single or combined parameters
are changed under controlled conditions. The group’s research on heterotrophic
calcifying organisms, like various echinoderms, could show that lowered pH in ocean
waters is resulting in abnormal and less robust skeletons.
The influence of eutrophication is being investigated in the Golfe d’Arguin off
Mauritania, where the content of nutrients in the water is naturally high. Investigation of
the data and sediment from the Maria S. Merian cruise 16-3 showed that filter-feeding
organisms like bivalves and bryozoans prosper in these coastal waters, whereas those
feeding through photosynthesis are rare.
The group also uses carbonate sediments as archives of the biotic composition of
ecosystems in order to characterise the status and the change of such systems over
36
time. The evolution of alternative ecosystems as a response to environmental changes
is reflected in the carbonate sediment composition. The skeletons of the carbonate
secreting organisms record environmental conditions in their geochemical composition.
A study of otoliths from surface samples and archaeological sites in Mauritania proved
the speed of the aridification of the Sahara in the Holocene.
In close cooperation with the newly established Leibniz Chair, the sedimentology group
also examines the effects of short-term sea-level change and its interaction with coastal
protection measures on tropical islands in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Tropical Marine Microbiology (Junior Research Group)
Wetland Dynamics
The new junior research group is especially interested in microbial interactions between
heterotrophic bacteria and phytoplankton relevant in marine aggregate formation and
particle sedimentation rates impacting tropical reef communities. One major source
of eutrophication is extensive fish farming (aquaculture) in tropical coastal areas,
which leads to the disappearance of coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass meadows.
Understanding the ecological impact of aquaculture on microbial associations can
provide a scientific basis for tropical coastal management.
Wetlands represent critical turnover habitats of marine, riverine and terrestrial derived
matter at the transition between land and sea, and are major sources of carbon and
nitrogen to the coastal region. Further, they are highly vulnerable to environmental
alterations and thus sensitive indicators of changes at global, regional and local level.
Yet, particularly in the tropics, the dynamics of these aquatic ecosystems with high
organic matter and nutrient loads, strong, recurrent floods and distinct seasonal
changes of precipitation are poorly understood. The workgroup focuses on the multiple
interactions between wetland vegetation, water biogeochemistry and microbiology.
The research group uses both molecular microbiology techniques and metagenomics,
but also biogeochemical approaches such as particulate organic carbon (POC) analyses.
Increasing POC sedimentation rates might interact with corals: attached to particles,
specific microbial phylotypes may be physically transported from fish pens onto coral
surfaces, which could lead to changes in microbial community structure or pathogen
proliferation. The effects of effluents on particle formation and the influence on tropical
reef microbial communities may provide a mechanistic link between eutrophication,
carbon flux and reef ecosystems.
Overarching goals of the initial projects are to reveal the effects of dissolved organic
carbon (DOM) and particulate organic matter (POM) on free living and particle-bound
bacteria along an eutrophication gradient in the Spermonde Archipelago, Indonesia
within the SPICE III programme. The islands of the archipelago are of particular scientific
interest because they are close to each other, but vary in human impact. Sewage input,
pollution and sedimentation from the harbour city of Makassar and the Jene Berang
River have a strong impact on near-shore islands, which gradually decreases towards
the outer-shelf islands. Another project, “The Mauritanian Shelf as Endmember of
Eutrophication – Matter Fluxes, Trophic Networks, Productivity”, will start in 2013 with
the emphasis on microbial community analysis and carbon fluxes.

In 2011, a new research project was launched, which links central aspects of
wetland dynamics, estuarine biogeochemistry, climate change and human health. The
BIOVIBEN project investigates the driving forces of the seasonality of the pathogenic
microorganisms that produce thousands of cholera incidences, mostly in tropical
coastal regions. The project is implemented in cooperation with the National Institute
for Cholera and Enteric Diseases, Kolkata. It is one of the ten projects selected for
bilateral funding from Germany and India in the frame of an intensification of scientific
cooperation. Research is performed in the Ganges delta, which embraces the most likely
largest mangrove forests (Sunderbans) worldwide. First results show that hydrological
and biogeochemical perturbation produced by recurrent cyclones and landslides
drastically increase the amount of Vibrio organisms in the waters of tropical estuaries.

The second major project is located in China and investigates the role of mangroves for
the biogeochemical fluxes into the coastal ecosystems of the Gulf of Beibu, South China
Sea, under anthropogenic change. The working area encompasses the estuaries of the
Nan Liu River, which come under the impact of intensive agriculture and aquaculture.
Although it could be shown that mangrove sediments are capable of taking up nutrients
from eutrophic waters, the data revealed that the anthropogenic nutrient load by far
exceeds uptake capacity of the remaining mangrove stands. Due to strong tides in the
area a high proportion of these inputs are exported further offshore.

Resource Management
Models used for resource management are rooted in ecological theories on the
functioning of populations and ecosystems. Depending on the type of resource and
data availability, a diverse set of models is presently being applied to the management
of aquatic resources. The focus of the Resource Management group is on fisheries
assessment and modelling using single-species and ecosystem-based research
approaches.
Workgroup leader:
Prof. Dr. Matthias Wolff
The aim is to derive estimates of current and potential exploitation rates of key
resources. Vital population parameters, such as growth and mortality rates, stockrecruitment and fluctuations in stock sizes are determined. Resources are modelled
in their ecosystem context, and the effect of resource use, climate forcing and
protection (MPAs) is explored. Through computer simulations resource management
recommendations are being elaborated, which also take into account the socioeconomic context of the fishery.
In 2011 and 2012 research focussed on the Galapagos Archipelago. Main activities were:
(1) the revision of the Galapagos sea cucumber stock monitoring and management
practices, (2) the trophic modelling of the Galapagos Large Marine Reserve (GMR) to
describe its food web structure, to explore the effect of El Niño and the banning of the
industrial fishery, (3) experimental and analytical work on subtidal community succession
in upwelling and non-upwelling areas in order to understand community dynamics and
their driving factors.
A large-scale pelagic model of the GMR revealed that, for the first 2-3 years, the
negative El Niño impact greatly outweighed the positive effect of the release in fishing
42
pressure. Thereafter, however, the stocks of large pelagic fish and sharks showed a
substantial recovery in biomass. Some of the simulated changes could be validated
by a range of observational data. The Bolivar Channel, an upwelling subsystem of the
GMR, revealed features of a classical upwelling system, i.e. largely driven by bottom-up
processes and comprising an enormous system biomass. The strong El Niño warming
event of 1997/98, however, caused nutrient scarcity in the lower trophic levels of the
food web, a reduction in ecosystem size, and biomass reductions in many species

Spatial Ecology and Interactions
Workgroup leader:
PD Dr. Hauke Reuter
The workgroup focuses on modelling individuals in a changing environment, their
reactions to external factors and their interactions in a spatial marine context. The
represented individuals may be humans or any type of ecological entities. An adequate
and sufficiently detailed description of the individual actors allows determination of how
their behaviour affects the development and dynamics of community structure within
the analysed system. The system analysis makes use of individual / agent-based modelling
(IBM / ABM), an approach which simulates the global characteristics of dynamic systems
on the basis of interacting system components. This approach includes the potential
to represent environmental variability, changes in interaction structure and spatial
heterogeneity, as well as rare events.
The cooperative project MaCoRAS (Understanding and Managing the Resilience of
Coral Reefs and Associated Social Systems) is part of the SPICE III programme and is
coordinated by the workgroup. Modelling constitutes an important part in this project,
which will integrate the knowledge from sub-projects on ecology and social systems to
derive future scenarios of coral reef management. Another project intends to analyse
the impact of diving tourism on coral reef ecosystems in Thai islands.
Starting in 2011, a new project is being executed in cooperation with the Institute of
Marine Sciences (IMS) in Zanzibar. It intends to study the spatial and temporal dynamics
of fish communities in the coastal systems of Zanzibar and further comparable
regions. The project focuses on the influence of tidal dynamics and the diel cycle of
fish migration and habitat use. The data will be used to specify a multi-species IBM
integrating key life history features of fish species from different functional groups in
a spatial representation of the environment. The model will then allow analysis of the
effects of different management strategies.
A highlight of the last year´s work is a model on phase shifts in reef systems which
aims at analysing the relative role of changing environmental factors, anthropogenic
impacts and habitat structure on reef development. Phase shifts may lead to a change in
dominating organisms in reefs, e.g. from a coral dominated state to an algae dominated
state. This very often coincides with a reduction in ecological functions and services.
Applied to Western Indian coral reefs, the model suggested that the switch from high
diversity communities to single species dominance can be produced by small changes in
any key parameter, like temperature values or mechanic disturbances, if a reef is already
stressed by other factors.

Systems Ecology
The Systems Ecology workgroup is involved with fundamental research and adopts a
holistic approach to ecology. Particular emphasis is placed on the study of processes in
biogeochemical, ecological and socio-economic systems. Presently, the group has four
major research priorities.
Workgroup leader:
Prof. Dr. Agostino Merico
The process of ocean acidification is expected to harm calcifying organisms such as
corals, a topic of ever growing importance. Recently, a model for a coral polyp was
developed that simulates the carbonate system in different compartments: the seawater,
the polyp tissue, the stomach of the coral polyp, and the calcifying fluid. The model is
adjusted to match direct observations of calcium concentrations and pH in the calcifying
fluid. Model simulations of CO2 perturbation experiments reveal decreasing calcification
rates under elevated pCO2 despite strong metabolic control of the calcifying fluid.
Within the SPICE III programme the effects of different emissions and functioning
scenarios of the „Indonesian carbon system“ on the global carbon cycle are investigated.
The Indonesian carbon system comprises various carbon reservoirs including tropical
rain forest, peatland, seagrass meadows, coral reefs and plankton in coastal waters. The
group assesses and quantifies the responses of each of these components to different
regional anthropogenic perturbations with a biogeochemical box model of the global
ocean.
Also, ecological models based on functional traits are developed. Trait-based models
can be constructed by incorporating principles derived from evolutionary biology and
quantitative genetics to produce appropriate parameterisations of community behaviour.
The use of traits to predict community composition can explain the organisation of
ecological systems and predict their re-organisation in a changing environment.
In partnership with the Institutional and Behavioural Economics Group, simple adaptive
models with cooperation as a continuous trait describing the dynamics of a renewable
common pool resource and a group of human consumers are developed. In the models,
the balance between instantaneous harvest and potential future harvest determines
the degree of cooperation among consumers. Applied to a laboratory experiment the
models demonstrated that unsustainable harvests might lock humans into a downward
vortex of decreasing expectations and diminishing pay-offs.

Algae and Seagrass Ecology (Junior Research Group)
Algae and seagrasses play an important role in tropical coastal systems as primary
producers of food and habitat for many marine organisms and providers of goods and
services to humans. Due to anthropogenic disturbances, however, loss of habitat and
shifts in their community structure are occurring rapidly. The new junior research group
Algae and Seagrass Ecology started in July 2012 and focuses on the performance and
community dynamics of these primary producers under stress.

The research group uses a combined approach of comparative field studies along
environmental gradients and in situ manipulation and laboratory experiments. It
focuses on establishing the link between human activities on land and changes in
biodiversity, distribution, and abundance of benthic primary producers in the coastal
environment. The group also examines physiological responses of algae and seagrasses
to individual and combined stressors to determine their tolerance limits and predict
their competitive success in changing environments. The stressors include increases in
nutrients, temperature, and CO2, as well as decreases in light availability and changes in
grazing patterns. Furthermore, the group investigates the relative importance of topdown and bottom-up controls on benthic primary producer communities and identifies
the consequences of shifts in these communities.
In the frame of the SPICE III programme, changes in the benthic coral reef communities
of the Spermonde Archipelago in response to nutrient enrichment from the mainland
and extensive fishing pressure are being studied. Understanding and predicting
phase-shifts from coral to macroalgal-dominated reefs is one of the main objectives.
Another study within the BIOACID II project examines the adaptive traits of algae and
seagrasses, their physiological performance and community structure at natural CO2
vent sites, e.g. in Papua New Guinea.

Coral Reef Ecology (CORE)
The key research of CORE is to understand the role of ecosystem engineers for coral
reef functioning and services. This includes descriptive studies, as well as experimental
studies in the field and the Marine Experimental Ecology facility (MAREE) at the ZMT.
The goal is to assess how variations in key environmental parameters, like temperature,
pH, oxygen and nutrient availability, or water currents affect the physiology and
metabolism of reef engineers.
Workgroup leader:
Prof. Dr. Christian Wild
An ecosystem-wide quantification of organic carbon release by scleractinian corals from
Red Sea coral reefs showed that the continuous release of organic material by reefbuilding corals contributes substantially to biogeochemical processes and concomitant
rapid nutrient recycling in coral reef ecosystems.
The main focus is on how these variations can influence quantitative and qualitative
fluxes of organic compounds, like mucus, sugars or amino acids, as well as inorganic
compounds, like skeletons or shells. These data are used in order to calculate
biogeochemical fluxes of key elements for benthic communities and further for the
entire reef ecosystem and how these control important ecosystem services such as
productivity, biodiversity and nutrient recycling.
In this thematic context, CORE has been successful in the acquisition of third-party
funding from the European Union (Marie Curie Actions People network SYnergies
through Merging BIOlogical and biogeochemical expertise in COral Research –
SYMBIOCORE), the German Research Foundation – DFG (CANCOR – Carbon And
Nitrogen fixation in CORal reefs), and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research
– BMBF (in the framework of the SPICE III programme).
CORE works in all world oceans, often comparatively, with a focus on the Australian
Great Barrier Reef, the Red Sea, the Caribbean and the Eastern Tropical Pacific. Key
results from a collaboration with the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS)
include the discovery of microbial biofilms as rapid and excellent indicators for changes
in water quality above coastal coral reefs. Also, the studies revealed that bacterial
biofilm communities rapidly adapt and reorganise under increasing CO2-concentration
and thereby maintain their activity. In collaboration with the neighbouring Max-Planck
Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen the research group could show that the
50
diversity of bacteria is particularly high in coral-generated habitats and experiences high
temporal and spatial variability.

The ecophysiology group conducts research for a better understanding of tropical
coastal ecosystems and reasons for success or failure of organisms living there. The
work focuses on ecologically or economically important key organisms occurring in
”extreme” environments like intertidal or upwelling areas. Physiological mechanisms of
acclimation and adaptation and impacts of anthropogenic influences are investigated
through comparative approaches. The focus is on key processes like ontogenesis and
resilience, metabolism, oxygen uptake, transport and processing in cells and organs, as
well as direct reactions and changes in behaviour due to stress.
than previously assumed and also hinted at different coping styles of individuals in their
initial handling of stress. Another project focuses on the nutrient uptake of the red
seaweed Gracilaria and its potential use as a bioabsorber of nutrient effluents from fish
aquaculture facilities in Indonesia. The data show that this seaweed has the potential to
rapidly take up large concentrations of ammonium from the surrounding water. Further
research examines the responses of calcifying organisms, e.g. the macroalga Halimeda, to
ocean acidification and nutrient enrichment as part of the BIOACID project.
In 2011 and 2012, field and laboratory experiments were conducted on fish, molluscs,
echinoderms, corals and macroalgae. Main objective of the new project “Improved
Larval Rearing (ILAR)” is the diversification of living zooplankton used as food source
for fish larvae. Both in aquaculture and ornamental culture the reproduction of marine
fish species depends on high survival rates of the extremely sensitive early life stages.
In a joint new project with the Leigh Marine Laboratory of the University of Auckland
in New Zealand, metabolic and behavioural adaptations of fishes living in rock-pool
environments are investigated. Rock-pools can display extreme gradients in temperature
and oxygen, particularly during low tides.
Within the SPICE III programme the influence of pollution and other stressors on the
physiology of selected marine organisms (fish, molluscs, corals) in the Bay of Jakarta is
studied. This includes sampling of organisms for live stress experiments in aquaria, but
also enzyme kinetics and fatty acid profiles in the laboratory. The production of bioactive
compounds in soft-corals and sponges and the potential longevity of cyanide derivates
in ornamental fish are also studied in Indonesia.
For the first time the metabolism and swimming activity of different life stages of

During the reporting period, major activities were realised in cooperation with southern
African countries within the integrated project GENUS and the bilateral project
”Impact of temperature and oxygen on fish larvae”. In a coastal upwelling system of
the Benguela Current, the consequences of increasing hypoxia on species survival and
food web structure are demonstrated. In 2011, the GENUS consortium submitted a
proposal for the prolongation of GENUS, which was granted by the BMBF in May 2012.
Two cruises with the German research vessel Maria S. Merian were conducted. The
large amount of data and samples collected constitute valuable material for the second
project phase of GENUS.
After passing a very successful final evaluation, the LANCET project ended in 2011. The
workgroup members engaged in the project concentrated on four aspects of estuarine
research: the nekton community in the Wenchang / Wenjiao estuary, the abiotic
54
environment, the drop net fisheries and the connectivity of habitats. About 130 fish
species could be identified in the estuary, but the overall biomass reached only 1 to 5 %
of biomass found in other tropical estuaries, which indicates heavy overfishing.
The Fisheries Biology group delivers the necessary knowledge on the biology, ecology
and population dynamics of exploited fish species to enable and ensure sustainable
fisheries. The Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) requires the investigation of the
biology of the species, the structure of the fish communities, processes and carrying
capacity in the ecosystem. Eggs and larvae of fish are the life stages most vulnerable to
environmental change and thus many of the activities concentrate on them. A focus lies
on estuaries along tropical coasts, as they provide important nurseries for many species
relevant to coastal fisheries. The question of connectivity of populations between
different ecosystems is in the foreground.
In 2011 and 2012, the workgroup contributed strongly to young scientists´ training.
Under the SPACES (Science Partnership for the Assessment of Complex Earth
System Processes) umbrella programme a training cruise for African and German
students dedicated to processes within the water column was organised in Namibian
waters. From 2006 to 2011, jointly with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale
Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) the workgroup successfully supported the implementation
of a bachelor course at the Papua New Guinea University of Natural Resources and
Environment.

In cooperation with the Griffith University in Australia, the group started a project on
the movement ecology of the exploited swimming crab Scylla serrata in Moreton Bay.
Another project will study, for the first time, the role of mangroves as fish habitat and
their nursery function in the Persian Gulf, in particular in Iranian waters.
During the period under report, mangrove-related research was continued at the
ZMT field station in Bragança, Brazil. The linkage between biodiversity and mangrove
ecosystem functions and services is investigated with a focus on species-rich and
species-poor systems, as it bears implications for management and restoration.
In Indonesia, mangrove research in the frame of the SPICE III programme will be
continued in the Segara Anakan Lagoon (Java) and will focus on the effects of human
activities on the biodiversity and community dynamics of mangrove vegetation and
benthic invertebrates. Previous studies demonstrated that the composition of nitrogen
compounds is a determining factor for the food choice of mangrove crabs, an essential
new finding for assessing the role of these ecosystem engineers. A new faunal species,
the kinorhynch Echinoderes applicitus sp. nov. was found in an oil-polluted area of the
lagoon. Its habitat adaptation reflects its ability to tolerate environmental stress due to
high concentrations of organic pollutants in the sediment.
The regional focus was broadened through new cooperation projects in India, Iran and
Australia. Since 2009, the group has been involved in a mangrove rehabilitation project
of 15,000 ha in Gujarat, India, which is implemented by the regional forest department
together with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
Replanting is done with just one species rather than aiming for the biodiversity of a
mixed forest. The main task in the project is the development and implementation of
56
a monitoring programme needed for error prevention and improvement of planting
techniques.
Mangrove forests occur along tropical and subtropical coastlines and serve as breeding,
spawning, hatching, and nursery grounds for many marine species. They provide wood
and other forest products to indigenous people and may act as a physical barrier
to protect human settlements from the ocean. Despite their values, mangroves are
amongst the most threatened ecosystems worldwide, subject to over-exploitation,
pollution, and conversion. Research focuses on natural mangrove resources, like fish and
crab and the biological basis for a sustainable management of mangrove forests.

The workgroup wants to understand how people organise the use of environmental
resources, in particular of marine and coastal resources. As these often are public
goods or common pool resources, they face the risk of being overexploited. The
group investigates the conditions under which people use resources in a sustainable
manner. A broad range of factors is taken into account, like ecosystem characteristics,
economic and social conditions, culture and institutions. In particular, research is aimed
at understanding the impact of rules and norms on the behaviour of people and how
they promote sustainable or unsustainable use.
Different investigative methods are employed. These range from qualitative case studies
to various experimental techniques. In Indonesia, a project was started with a natural
field experiment to identify the best triggers to reduce the use of plastic bags, a major
component of Indonesian marine pollution. Another project looks at the regulation of
peatland destruction, an important source of carbon emission. Decentralised regulation,
as is favoured currently in Indonesia, provides challenges, which are investigated using

Costa Rica is going through a process of expanding its marine protected areas (MPAs).
The group is investigating this process by using a case study approach. Also, work on
the use of turtle eggs continues. A first publication focused on the important role of
sanctions for collective action, using a unique database on rule infractions by the
community investigated. It revealed that alternative income sources are an important
factor determining rule infractions. At present an experiment in Nicaragua with turtle
egg harvesters is run, where various forms of payments for environmental services that
should induce harvest-reduction are tested.
In the social science laboratory of the Jacobs University Bremen a project was started

Takuu is an atoll located approximately 250 kilometres northeast of the island of
Bougainville in Papua New Guinea. With a population of around 600, the people of this
remote Polynesian outlier are said to be among the most vulnerable to the detrimental
effects of anthropogenic climate change. The impacts include erosion of shorelines,
salination of the water table affecting swamp taro cultivation, increased flooding from
“king tides” and changing weather patterns.
While some researchers claim Takuu could prove uninhabitable within the next decade,
the islanders’ resource use patterns and potential adaptive capacity have received little
attention. The planned ethnographic research will include local ecological knowledge and
socio-cultural practices and connect them to scientific knowledge about climate change
impacts. The research will be conducted through participant observation complemented
by semi-structured interviews, free listing, oral histories, social mapping and land /
resource use mapping.

In September 2011, an aquarist with
a scientific background in biology
was appointed as coordinator of the
experimental activities in the MAREE.
He is in charge of organising further
developments and of coordinating the
potential synergies for experiments in the
MAREE.
The staff of the biological laboratory
conducts a broad range of routine
analyses. Everyday laboratory practice
encompasses fatty acid analyses,
taxonomic identification of tiny marine
fish larvae and of benthos samples,
enzyme assays and the maintenance of
field equipment such as multi parameter
probes.
For the experiments, more than 60
smaller aquaria and three larger holding
tanks are available. Physical background
parameters such as temperature, light,
pH, salinity and oxygen concentrations,
as well as alkalinity and water current
velocity can be manipulated and
monitored using appropriate sensing or
logging devices. In addition, photosynthetic
activity, inorganic nutrient concentrations
and other chemical parameters can
be monitored. The MAREE offers the
possibility to flexibly realise different
kinds of experimental set-ups for a wide
range of research projects in a series
of aquaria, flasks or beakers of various
sizes. Recent structural improvements
focused on laboratory equipment to
conduct perturbation experiments. In
particular the new gas-mixing system is
an important scientific tool to address
climate change issues. Scientists from the
departments of Ecology, Biogeochemistry
and Geology as well as modellers are
using the new aquarium facility for joint
interdisciplinary research.

In 2012, the biological laboratory was
supplemented by a molecular lab to
conduct genetic analyses of field samples
and in house organisms from the MAREE.
The first experiments dealt chiefly with
species identification of morphologically
difficult to determine samples, such as
crustose coralline algae, different strains
of coral symbionts or bacteria. This
technique uses the advantage of the
existing large barcoding databases, but
future applications will also include gene
expression analyses to trace physiological
responses.

In 2011 and 2012, the HPLC (High

will allow measurement of nutrients
at low levels with a higher accuracy.
Inter-comparison experiments with the
chemistry laboratory from the AlfredWegener-Institute were initiated. New
methods were implemented in order
to improve efficiency and precision. The
ICP-OES (Inductively coupled plasma
with optical emission spectrometer) for
example is now being used instead of the
previous photometrical method for the
determination of sediment components
like silica and biogenic opal. The detection
limit of the gas chromatograph was
reduced significantly, which now makes it
possible to analyse nitrogen-fixation rates
also in coral reefs. Photometric methods
for the determination of nitrate have also
been improved and a new method for
the precise analysis of the total alkalinity in
seawater was implemented.
In autumn 2011 a new thin section
laboratory and a scanning electron
microscope (SEM) were installed at
the ZMT. The lab offers the possibility
to prepare thin sections from a variety
of sample materials for detailed
ultrastructural studies with the light
microscope or the SEM.
The project of server virtualisation was
started in 2011 with the installation
of the appropriate hardware. In the
following months the existing servers
were gradually virtualised. The new system
offers considerably more resources than
the total of single servers before. New
applications can be tested and made easily
available to users. In addition, the network
was adapted to the growing demand.
The scientific library of the ZMT mainly
serves as a reference library for ZMT
staff members. The main focus of the
library collection is on biogeochemistry,
ecological modelling, ecology, fisheries
biology, marine ecosystems, and social
sciences. The collection consists of around
4500 monographs and 100 running
meters of periodical volumes. The ZMT
currently subscribes to about 25 printed
scientific journals. Beyond that, the library
offers access to numerous subject-specific
journals and databases, partially enabled
via national licenses funded by the
German Research Foundation (DFG).
With its membership in the Leibniz
Association the ZMT’s personnel is
expanding continuously. The current
number of people working at the ZMT
has risen above the mark of 120. With
the new hires at the professorial level and
their associate staff, new junior research
groups, a graduate school and additional
third-party funding, a further rise is
expected.
The chemical laboratory provides student
training and special workshops in the
frame of the ISATEC Master Programme.
The SEM is equipped with a BSED (Backscatter electron diffraction) detector to
examine material differences in samples,
a low-vacuum mode for wet samples, an
EDX (Energy-dispersive X-Ray) to analyse
elemental composition, and a built-in
micro-CT scanner for examination of the
inner structure of samples.
The equipment is applicable to a
wide range of studies in the marine
field. Present focus is on, for example,
the analysis of calcified structures of
tropical organisms like echinoderms and
calcifying algae, which are under pressure
from ocean acidification, and the study
of particle size and composition of
sediments. Technical assistance is provided
in sample preparation, like coating or
sputtering, as well as analytical methods.
Already in 2009, an intranet was
developed for the ZMT, which has now
been substantially expanded. This includes
a system which efficiently coordinates user
support and an information system which
displays the structures and work routines
of the ZMT especially for new employees.
A workflow management system is being
planned. The intranet was transferred from
the ZMT server to an internet server in
order to facilitate access for staff members
from all over the world.
Other projects include the provision
of further WLAN access points, the
implementation of video-conferences and
the provision of web-based training for
different applications. A data base
(FACTScience by QLEO Science
GmbH) is currently being set up for all
administrative data and performance
indicators like publications, supervision,
teaching and third-party funding. After
implementation the ZMT will be able to
continuously analyse and track most data
needed for benchmarking criteria.
The library catalogue gives access to stock
held within the ZMT library. Also, the
library is associated with the Interlibrary
Loan Programme. T
he library collaborates
with other libraries and is a member of
numerous associations, like the Common
Library Network (GBV), the German
Association of Marine Science Libraries
and Information Centers (GAMSLIC/
AMB), and the International Association
of Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries
and Information Centers (IAMSLIC). This
association provides a forum for exchange
and exploration of ideas and issues of
mutual concern and provides a resourcesharing programme.
At the same time, as the numbers of
researchers at the ZMT is on the rise,
a first expansion of the administrative
and infrastructural service included the
hiring of a facility manager, a purchasing
agent, a new laboratory technician
mainly responsible for the ICP-OES,
and further support for IT services and
the directorate. In September 2011, an
aquarist was appointed as coordinator of
the experimental activities in the MAREE
facility. The position at the head of the
chemical laboratory was advertised in
autumn 2012.
As of September 1st 2012, the ZMT is
an authorised training employer and is
currently supporting four young trainees
in their endeavour to qualify for their
future careers. They are assigned to the
administration, the library and the IT
workgroup.
Generally, the ZMT is an institute with a
reasonable percentage of female workstaff at the ZMT. T
he institute took
successful measures to employ qualified
women, e.g. as heads of the junior
research groups and in the directorate. In
the context of providing a family-friendly
work environment, the ZMT negotiated
for three places with a childcare-centre
on campus and now offers these to staff
members. Additionally, flexible working
time is guaranteed.
In 2011, a ZMT-representative for the
storage of research data was nominated.
He coordinates the long-term storage
of ZMT-research data in the data base
PANGAEA and will develop alternatives
for data, which do not fit into PANGAEA.
