Just Out: Evaluating the Specificity of Ecosystem Indicators in the southern Benguela
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 12:30

Ecological indicators used to monitor fishing effects in the context of climate change and variability need to be informative to enable effective ecosystem-based fisheries management. We evaluated the specificity of the response of ecosystem indicators to different fishing and environmental pressure levels using Ecosim and Atlantis ecosystem models for the southern Benguela ecosystem.

Just Out: The specificity of Marine Ecological Indicators
Friday, June 29, 2018 - 10:15

Ecological indicators are widely used to characterise ecosystem health. In the marine environment, indicators have been developed to assess the ecosystem effects of fishing to support an ecosystem approach to fisheries. However, very little work on the performance and robustness of ecological indicators has been carried out.

4th PICES Climate Change Symposium
Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 09:00

The 4th International Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World's Oceans (June 2-8, 2018) )will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond.

Lynne will be one of the experts in the Opening Panel of this Symposium, which will be widely covered by media. She is also participate in a number of workshops around the conference. An outstanding ambassador of Benguela research!

See you soon, Florian!

Improving understanding of how biodiversity and ecosystems respond to environmental change is needed to guide environmental policy and management. To this end, the bioDISCOVERY project of “Future Earth”, the international programme on global change, initiates and supports international networks of scientists to advance research on monitoring and observations, scenarios of global change, models, and assessments of biodiversity and ecosystems (terrestrial and aquatic).
