Full-text available
Current trends in the global climate facilitate the displacement of numerous marine species from their native distribution ranges to higher latitudes when facing warming conditions. In this work, we analyzed occurrences of a circumtropical reef fish, the spotfin burrfish, Chilomycterus reticulatus (Linnaeus, 1958), in the Madeira Archipelago (NE At...

This work is the result of an international research effort to determine the main impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on marine recreational fishing. Changes were assessed on (1) access to fishing, derived from lockdowns and other mobility restrictions; (2) ecosystems, because of alterations in fishing intensity and human presence; (3) the blue econom...

Macroalgal forests play a key role in shallow temperate rocky reefs worldwide, supporting communities with high productivity and providing several ecosystem services. Sea urchin grazing has been increasingly influencing spatial and temporal variation in algae distributions and it has become the main cause for the loss of these habitats in many coas...
Article
Seagrass meadows are globally recognized as important coastal habitats due to the various ecological functions and ecosystem services they provide. Substantial global decline of seagrass habitats has been recorded over the last decades, underlining the need for extensive studies, including monitoring and mapping these habitats across their distribu...

The project MISTIC SEAS I selected common species and Management Units (MUs) in European Macaronesia islands (Azores, Madeira and the Canary Islands) and defined thresholds and environmental targets to help determine the Good Environmental Status (GES) of this MUs following the requirements of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). MISTIC...
Article
The introduction of non-indigenous species (NIS) is considered as one of the main causes associated with biodiversity loss. The number of NIS has increased significantly emphasizing the need to know and manage the processes of biological invasions. Recreational marinas are points of entry for potential colonizers and can act as stepping-stones for...
Article
The brown alga Lobophora (Dictyotales, Phaeophyceae) is an important macroalga in the North-eastern Atlantic archipelagos (i.e., Macaronesia). Notably in the Canaries it can dominate benthic assemblages. While the genus has been the subject of several ecological studies in the Canaries, no study has yet been conducted to assess species-level divers...
Technical Report

This document, the MRR, includes the description of the criteria and species assessed, along with compilation of the results obtained during the implementation of the pilot monitoring programmes under the MSFD for marine birds, mammals and turtles in the three Macaronesian archipelagos (Azores, Madeira and Canary Islands) but also from other additi...

No âmbito do projeto BioMar PT, os guias de Identificação de Espécies Não Indígenas da Costa Portuguesa contemplados nesta área temática pretendem dar formação de modo a qualificar recursos humanos em áreas prioritárias que contribuam para a execução da DQEM . Com a execução deste projeto pretende-se, em particular, contribuir para a minimização da...

Recreational boating is a major vector of introduction of non-indigenous species worldwide and ascidians are some of the most abundant introduced taxa. Nine ascidian species have been identified in two recreational marinas near Lisbon (Alcântara and Oeiras), sampled during February 2016, following rapid assessment survey (RAS) protocols. Different...

The Selvagens Islands are located in the northeastern Atlantic between the Canary Islands and Madeira Island. As a result of their small dimensions, remote location and harsh sea conditions only a few studies have been conducted to describe their marine species diversity. We were able to identify 29 new coastal fish species, an increase of 33% in t...

Cetaceans’ research in the Madeira archipelago has been mainly restricted to the inshore waters (Freitas et al, 2004, Alves et al 2010, 2013). Consequently there is a lack of knowledge about cetaceans and of the interactions and impacts of human activities in the Madeira offshore waters. Therefore, between 2010 and 2012, within the CETACEOSMADEIRAI...

In the present paper the authors give an account on a didactic activity never done before in Madeira, aiming to unveil the main aspects of the deep Atlantic Ocean, including research done in Madeira and the main threats to this particular ecosystem. This activity was presented as a multimedia exhibition that was shown at all the municipalities of t...

While the brown seaweed Lobophora acts as a major component of coral reef ecosystems, its species richness has only recently been unveiled. Recent molecular analyses revealed that the genus contains over 100 species, and we estimate this diversity to be twice higher. The project intends to reassess the diversity in regions where Lobophora was poorly studied.
