Final Report - BIOCONNECTENCE (Biodiversity and connectivity in the resilience of coastal marine communities)
Project ID: 221065Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE
The aim of the BIOCONNECTENCE project was to conduct a survey of the Ligurian rocky intertidal to define biodiversity over spatial scales of metres up to around 100 km, as well as perform a multi-site disturbance-recovery experiment to assess the role of ecological connectivity in influencing recovery rates, and thereby assess resilience. A major review of ecological resilience, focused on resolving the current disparities between theoretical and empirical research, was also conducted.
