Exploitable results – Models on the distribution of coralligenous outcrops and maërl in the Mediterranean Sea

Result description

Review of existing spatial datasets showing the distribution of coralligenous and maërl habitats across the Mediterranean Sea, highlighting current gaps in knowledge. Predictive modelling was carried out, based on environmental predictors in order to produce the first continous maps of these two habitats across the entire basin
