Announcement: DEVOTES-EUROMARINE Summer School, 9-11 June 2015


This FP7 DEVOTES project course falls into the first scientific priority and emerging fields identified by the FP7 EuroMarine programme (Understanding marine ecosystems for healthy oceans). Additionally, it could be considered one of the six ’emerging fields’ identified: “Complex interactions including tipping points, regime shifts and shifting assemblages in marine ecosystems”, since the management of marine ecosystems require a deep understanding of: (i) the complex interactions between human pressures and ecosystem responses; (ii) the interactions between the multiple ecosystem components, often non-linear by nature; (iii) the shifting baselines of the targets used to assess environmental status, underlying different components of global change; (iv) the pluridisciplinary dimension of ecosystem management (including the scientific diversity among managers and scientists) and (v) the need to address both socio-economic and environmental issues.
