Biodiversity patterns in Mediterranean coralligenous outcrops

Welcome to medDiversa

Marine biodiversity is a dynamic entity and is widely recognised as a critical factor for ecosystem maintenance. The aim of medDiversa (Global change on highly diverse Mediterranean coralligenous communities: Consequences for biodiversity conservation) is to investigate the current extent of biodiversity of the high diverse coralligenous outcrops of the Mediterranean Sea, detect its changes, and create a scientific platform in developing future scenarios of biodiversity response to global change across large spatial and mid- to long-term temporal scales. This quantitative information has been largely documented in several terrestrial and tropical marine ecosystems but has never been assessed in coralligenous outcrops on a true multidisciplinary platform.
