The Approach

Biodiversity changes - 

causes, consequences and management implications

  • Focus on biodiversity - from genotypes to ecosystems
  • Physiological tolerance, adaption in contrasting habitats like coastal/offshore as well as along gradients, e.g. salinity/ temperature/ diversity
  • Diversity changes under different driver scenarios and driver interactions e.g. eutrophication, O2, pH, temperature, fisheries, shipping, bioinvasions
  • Functional diversity and trait based approach for understanding impacts of changing biodiversity on ecosystem functioning
  • Stakeholder involvement
