The Northeast Atlantic, a highly productive maritime area, has been exposed to a wide range of direct human pressures, such as fishing, shipping, coastal development, pollution, and non-indigenous species (NIS) introductions, in addition to anthropogenically-driven global climate change. Nonetheless, this regional sea supports a high diversity of s...

Ocean ecosystems play a key role in maintaining the integrity of our biosphere, but vary widely with respect to their biodiversity attributes, their relationship with the atmosphere and climate change processes, and the ecosystem services that they provide to humans. Coral reefs and ecologically associated coastal ecosystems, such as intertidal man...
Technical Report

this document is the work of a team assembled by the International Coral Reef Society (ICRS). The mission of ICRS is to promote the acquisition and dissemination of scientific knowledge to secure the future of coral reefs, including via relevant policy frameworks and decision-making processes. This document seeks to highlight the urgency of taking...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The multimetric approach is a methodological tool which can be used to study a range of systems, including GES assessment of marine waters. Three indicators (PH1, PH2 and PH3) are currently being developed in the frame of the OSPAR convention for the pelagic habitat component. The three PH indicators provide information on different and complementa...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This "Action Plan" presents recommendations from the EcApRHA project (Applying an Ecosystem Approach to (sub) Regional Habitat Assessment) that can be used to progress OSPAR’s biodiversity monitoring and assessment towards the next Quality Status Report assessment and in its regional coordination role in support Contracting Parties’ implementation...
Article
Creating representative networks of marine protected areas (MPAs) as part of an ecosystem-based management approach is generally advocated to protect the full spectrum of marine ecosystems and vulnerable species. Core objectives for designing MPA networks incorporate issues of scale, size and spacing. Ascertaining when such objectives have been met...
Book
This rapid response assessment delineates case studies that have successfully implemented ecological restoration projects that range in scope from agriculture to health and waste water management. This report chronicles these projects from inception to design to application. It ultimately proposes future directions for modeling and support while co...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The objective of this report is to highlight the critical role of the oceans and ocean ecosys­ tems in maintaining our climate and in assisting policy makers to mainstream an oceans agenda into national and international climate change initiatives. While emissions’ re­ ductions are currently at the centre of the climate change discussions, the crit...
Chapter
Coral reefs are the 'rain forests' of the ocean, containing the highest diversity of marine organisms and facing the greatest threats from humans. As shallow-water coastal habitats, they support a wide range of economically and culturally important activities, from fishing to tourism. Their accessibility makes reefs vulnerable to local threats that...
Article
The vast literature about poverty is organized around various ways of understanding this complex phenomenon. Income, exclusion/inclusion, levels of well-being, deprivation indices, access to material goods are only few of the conceptual tools that have been utilized as measures of poverty. The manner in which poverty is measured reflects fundamenta...
Article
Recent underwater studies have shown the beauty and high diversity of cold-water coral reefs, which are comparable in size and structural complexity to the warm-water coral reefs of the tropics. This chapter describes the various cold-water coral ecosystems, together with their known and potential global geographical distribution. Observations from...
