Table of contents




Welcome and introduction 4

Introduction to Topic 1.1: The role of top predators (incl. gelatinous organisms) and large nekton (incl. whales & dolphins, seals, sharks, turtles) in biodiversity 6

Introduction to Topic 1.2: Monitoring studies on marine biodiversity in the Mediterranean, with special reference to Southern and Eastern countries 9

Introduction to Topic 1.3: Historical data sets and grey literature: the value of ‘real’ data and the need for quality control 11

Assurance of sustainability of surveillance plans would guarantee the chronological data required to control environmental quality. In this respect, new coordinating mechanisms aiming to reach the requested objectives in environmental performance in general, and in the coastal marine domain in particular, need to be invented. This progress will have the advantage of regaining control on critical processes, which produce a rapid degradation of the Mediterranean coastal marine ecosystems. 12

Introduction to Topic 1.4: New techniques, tools and approaches to study marine biodiversity at the regional (Mediterranean) scale 13

Introduction to Topic 1.5: Do we need a revision of our biodiversity research agenda? 16

Introduction to Topic 2.1: Endangered biodiversity and management of marine protected areas, wetlands, lagoons, estuaries and seagrass meadows 19

Introduction to Topic 2.1 part Black Sea: Ecological changes in the Black Sea 21

Introduction to Topic 2.2: Biodiversity conservation, impact of human activities, environmental policy and public awareness 26

Introduction to Topic 2.3: Climate change and exotic/invasive species (including lessepsian migration) 30

Introduction to Topic 2.3 part Black Sea: Climate change and exotic/invasive species 33

Introduction to Topic 2.4: Environmental variability and biodiversity predictability: data collection and ocean models– what to do? 37

Introduction to Topic 2.5: Regional and international cooperation and comparative situations in the Mediterranean and Black Seas 40

Introduction to Topic 3.1: From taxonomy to patterns and processes – the problem of “classical taxonomist guild extinction” and the need to advance biodiversity research in the Black Sea 43

Introduction to Topic 3.2: Microbiota, deep sea biodiversity and unexploited habitats – the neglected biodiversity 46

Introduction to Topic 3.3: In search of pressure-state-response biodiversity indicators - extending science to policy 49
