Where are we?


Welcome to the web site of the ICM's Department of Marine Biology and Oceanography. Here you will find information about the research we are developing: projects, publications and people involved. We also have some community outreach information pages for the general public where you can learn why do we study the biology of the sea, and where we give some overview of the basic characteristics of the organisms and processes under study.
