Thomas Kiørboe is a professor of ocean ecology at the National Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark. He studies the natural history of plankton with a focus on life-histories, adaptations, and individual level biological-physical interactions. His ASLO Web lecture is an updated version of a plenary talk at ASLO's 2005 summer meeting in Spain, and he has recently published a book on the same topic (A Mechanistic Approach to Plankton Ecology; Princeton University Press, 2008).
