GIS has an important role to play for managing spatial and attribute information on the ecosystems of the MB and to facilitate interactions with existing databases. Where limited information is. Mediterranean deep-sea ecosystems: an overview of their diversity, structure, functioning and anthropogenic impacts. In: The Mediterranean deep-sea ecosystems: an overview of their diversity, structure, functioning and anthropogenic impacts, with a proposal for conservation. IUCN, Málaga and WWF, Rome. pp. Part II. Moreover, these Mediterranean-climate regions also are recognized internationally as some of the most imperiled ecosystems in the world. The five Mediterranean regions are estimated to experience very great proportional change in biodiversity by owing to their sensitivity to changes in land use and climate. Role of Biological Field Stations. GIS has an important role to play for managing spatial and attribute information on the ecosystems of the MB and to facilitate interactions with existing databases. Where limited information is available it can be used for prediction when directly or indirectly linked to externally built models.
Abstract. The Mediterranean Basin has played a prominent role in humanity’s biological and cultural evolution. From archaeological sites scattered throughout the region, and from the rich written records of historical times, we can trace our development from hunters and gatherers to a species able to reap the benefits of pastoralism, agriculture, and finally sophisticated technology — from. The degradation of P. oceanica seagrass meadows is a major concern as these marine ecosystems play a fundamental role in the health and productivity of many Mediterranean marine habitats. Seagrass monitoring and mapping are fundamental tools for measuring the status and trends of meadows and their environmental condition (Topouzelis et al., ).
