Main

Our aim is to investigate the processes that regulate marine plant production at different organizational levels: molecular, plant, community and ecosystem. Knowledge on these processes is instrumental to understand the role of marine vegetation in the structure and functioning of coastal systems and to assess the impacts of human-induced disturbances including climate change. Our scientific output is expected to contribute to the valuation, management and conservation of the ecological services of vegetated coastal systems.
