CLIMCARES: Assessing climate change impacts on marine biodiversity conservation: The case study of mass mortality events in the NW Mediterranean basin

{ireki/cp07/More information}

The main aim of ClimCares is to investigate the potential impacts of climate change on Mediterranean marine biodiversity by developing warming scenarios by the end of XXIst century which will be coupled with the expected biological responses to temperature warming, more particularly the project is focused in the analysis of the occurrence the mass mortality events. ClimCares is developing an original strategy to assess potential risk of mortality outbreaks on the NW Mediterranean coastal areas. We are using a pluridisciplinary approach conducted at large geographic scale (the NWM) combining numerical simulations, field observations and bibliographic study lead by specialists in the fields of modelisation, data analysis and conservation biology. The expected results will furnish precious data for the conservation of the rich marine Mediterranean biodiversity.

medDIVERSA: Global change in highly-diverse Mediterranean coralligenous communities: Consequences for biodiversity conservation

{ireki/cp01/More information}

The main aim of the medDIVERSA project is to investigate current biodiversity patterns of highly diverse coralligenous communities dwellling in different areas of the W Mediterranean Sea. This analysis will allow to detect future biodiversity changes, and to develop potential future scenarios of biodiversity response to global change at large spatial and mid- to long-term temporal scales due to global change.

BIOROCK: Global change in sublittoral rocky bottoms: consequences for biodiversity conservation.

{ireki/cp03/More information}

The Biorock project focuses on the reactions, recovery, and prediction of future trajectories of NW Mediterranean species and communities that are facing the potential effects of climate change and invasive species. To achieve this, we are carrying out environmental (temperature) and ecological surveys (baseline data on structure and dynamics at community and population level) and developing population modelling tools (Population Viability Analysis). The main objectives of the BIOROCK project are to search for empirical relationships between the direct and synergic effects of temperature and species invasion on rocky benthic communities at different biological organization levels (individual, population and community); to establish environmental and ecological reference baselines; and to develop a series of tools for detecting changes and forecasting the long-term effects of disturbances on the effectiveness of management plans.
