Living with global change

We are investigating the uncertainties and long-term consequences of global environmental change on how ecosystems are structured, the functions they serve and the services they provide to humanity. In particular we are focusing on the essential contribution of the marine ecosystem to food security and the development of nature-based solutions to environmental problems.

Massive biological shifts in the global ocean

A new study shows how a warming ocean has led to unprecedented marine biological changes at the global level over the last decade, and that future changes will be stronger and have more severe effects on the living marine resources that we rely on.


Seabed carbon stores threatened by climate change and human activity

New research suggests that some marine organisms are unable to cope with increasing carbon dioxide and low oxygen events simultaneously, providing fresh understanding of the impacts of multiple stressors on these fragile and poorly understood ecosystems.
