Information about the Station:
J.A. Palménin tie 260
Tvärminne Zoological Station (together with Lammi Biological Station and Kilpisjärvi Biological Station) belongs to the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki. It serves as a centre for a large variety of high quality biological research, carries out environmental monitoring, and offers facilities for field courses, symposia and seminars. Through these activities it also contributes to the “third task” of the universities: interaction with the surrounding society.
From May to September the Station is fully occupied by scientists and students engaged in natural phenomena in the brackish-water Baltic Sea and the neighboring archipelago of thousands of islands. However, towards the end of the summer, many of the biologists and other natural scientists return to Helsinki leaving lecture rooms, accommodation facilities and catering services available for e.g. international meetings and symposia as well as for courses and seminars in non-biological disciplines.
On these pages, we give a presentation of the infrastructure and general activities at Tvärminne Zoological Station as well as some useful practical matters. For more detailed information, please, contact the Station by phone or by e-mail
