... ood description and knowledge of the structure and biological processes in pelagic food webs. In marine ecosystems, zooplankton occupy a key trophic position in plankton food webs, playing a pivotal role in marine biogeochemical cycling and fish recruitment. Knowledge of zooplankton predator-prey interactions is essential for better comprehension of the factors regulating the structure of marine f ...

"The MSY concept was included as a principle in the 2009 Green Paper on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in accordance with the global imperative to manage fish stocks according to the maximum sustainable yield (MSY). This implies a commitment to direct management of fish stocks towards achieving MSY by 2015. Attaining this goal is complicated by the lack of common agreement on the ...

Marine life makes a substantial contribution to the economy and society of Europe. VECTORS will elucidate the drivers, pressures and vectors that cause change in marine life, the mechanisms by which they do so, the impacts that they have on ecosystem structures and functioning, and on the economics of associated marine sectors and society. VECTORS will particularly focus on causes and consequences ...

Trait-based approaches across marine ecosystems (TBAAMARE)

Start date: Aug 1, 2011, End date: Jul 31, 2012,

Trait-based approaches are being increasingly used in ecology. They consider simultaneously multiple morphological and functional traits to explain community distributions along various environmental gradients and predict ecosystem functioning. Traditional taxon-based approaches become unwieldy as the number of species increases; trait-based approaches provide a way to simplify this complexity, b ...
