Monitoring & Managing of European Seagrass Ecosystems - M&MS
The goal of the M&MS project is to define the habitat requirements of seagrasses in the European coasts, the present threats to the sustainability of the ecosystem they form, and their resilience to disturbance in order to strengthen our forecast capacity and formulate cost-effective monitoring plans and management strategies.
The project is using a multidisciplinary approach to compile and analyze existing monitoring data, performing broad-scale and detailed field studies and making experimental manipulations and detailed process studies in the field and laboratory.
The existing and acquired knowledge have been integrated into a handbook for environmental managers to assist them target anthropogenic activities critical to the sustainability of seagrass beds and to provide them with simple operational models for forecasting the performance and recovery of seagrass beds.
