Final Report - MARBEF (Marine biodiversity and ecosystem functioning)

Project ID: 505446
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Marine biodiversity describes the total variation among living organisms in the marine realm, is crucial for various biogeochemical processes and provides numerous goods and services that are essential for human welfare. Therefore, its loss is among the major consequences of unsustainable resources’ exploitation.

The EU-funded MARBEF project aimed to establish a European network on marine biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in order to enhance understanding of the ongoing large-scale, long term changes.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project objectives, summarises the undertaken activities and highlights their principal findings. Moreover, the document includes recommendations for future research initiatives and closes with a synopsis of the established synergies and the implemented dissemination and training actions.
