EXTREME-REEF Project: Research for adaptation: Knowing the effects of extreme weather events on coastal reefs

Until June 2022, experts attached to the MIES Ramon Margalef, Bioplastic Lab research team will study how to forecast the effects of climate change in marine protected areas. Environmental stress, eutrophication (the process of excessive enrichment of nutrients in an aquatic ecosystem), and the increased distribution of invasive species to which habitat 1170 is subjected will be analyzed in a climate change scenario.

The EXTREME-REEF project has the support of the Fundación Biodiversidad del Ministerio para la Transición Ecológica y el Reto Demográfico.
