Project: Understanding the mechanisms of recovery and resilience in marine soft-bottom assemblages

project duration
01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-13
This project investigate the ecological mechanisms that underpin resilience or shifts between alternate states of marine soft-bottom assemblages. Feedback process that hold the system in a particular state or not will be identified by determining interactions between biofilms and benthos, the implications of variability in key species populations, and how spatio-temporal variability in assemblages interact with disturbance regime/recovery dynamics
