Project summary

ProOceans aims to advance the capacity of marine ecosystem models (MEMs) to forecast future scenarios of global change by improving the mechanisms used to project species distributions and ecosystem changes. This will be achieved by factoring key ecological and evolutionary processes related to the species ability to adapt to new conditions, or move and invade new areas, into an ecosystem context using a global MEM. These improvements will be integrated with future changes in environmental dynamics and the management of key human activities
