Objective 3

Restoration of endangered populations

MedRecover is studying the viability of different transplantation methods for long-lived species that have suffered serious impacts in past decades, such as algae from Cystoseira and gorgonian species. These studies go beyond the establishment of transplantation techniques: they also analyze the efficiency and possible consequences of these actions using modelling approaches. These analyses have shown that transplantations could effectively increment the viability of degraded gorgonian and Cystoseira spp. populations.
