EU-funded FutureMARES project starts

The new EU-funded project FutureMARES about Climate Change and Future Marine Ecosystem Services and Biodiversity just started (01/09/2020) and will keep us busy for the next 4 years. The website of the project is now live: https://www.futuremares.eu/    

Advancing global ecological modelling capabilities to simulate future trajectories of change in marine ecosystems

Our new paper regarding global marine ecosystem modelling is out in Frontiers in Marine Science Check it out here: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmars.2020.567877/abstract   In this study, we present a global ecosystem modelling complex, EcoOcean v2, and use it to simulate past and future scenarios of marine ecosystem change, where we quantify the impacts of alternative configurations of […]

Researchers propose expanding the network of MPAs to ensure the future of sharks and rays in the western Mediterranean

A group of researchers from the Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM) of Barcelona, the Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals (CREAF), the Instituto Español de Oceanografía (IEO) and the University of Queensland (Australia) has shown that the current network of marine protected areas (MPAs) in Spanish Mediterranean waters does not protect properly sharks […]

April 2020 – PELWEB project final meeting
