The Mediterranean Sea is recognized as a key component in the development, economy, and culture of European, North African, and Middle East countries. With respect to heterogeneity across the region in different sectors, Ocean Literacy, though still in its infancy, is nevertheless a requisite for a better understanding of the two-way interaction be...

Article
Full-text available
The Mediterranean Sea is characterized by rich biodiversity, and its region hosts people living in several countries with a rich variety of cultures, but-at the same time-it is "under siege", due to anthropogenic pressures. To address these pressures, many actions are needed aiming, among others, at establishing Ocean Literacy (OL) across the Medit...

Ocean Literacy (OL) is considered to be important for raising awareness of the people concerning conservation, restoration and sustainable use of the ocean and its resources. Addressing environmental issues related to the Mediterranean SeaMediterranean Sea and increasing OL can be the first step to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 14UN Sustaina...
Article
Full-text available
Ocean Literacy (OL) has been defined as an understanding of the ocean’s influence on people and their influence on the ocean. The OL movement was born in the US and its framework consisted of seven essential principles and 45 fundamental concepts; it is now largely accepted worldwide for use in both formal (schools and universities) and non-formal...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A European Maritime Day (EMD) 2019 event was held at a Greek mainland middle school in which twenty-two fifteen-years-old students participated. The event included a presentation, two hands-on labs (“Floating and non-floating plastics”, “The voyage of rubber ducks”), one drama activity (“How do sea food chains work?”) as well as one drawing and han...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Ocean Literacy (OL) is of paramount importance nowadays as the life-giving ocean is seriously under threat. Children who are considered to be the “living arrows sent forth” should have the opportunity to become citizens able to make informed and responsible decisions about the ocean. Members of the European Marine Science Educators Association from...
Article
Full-text available
A good understanding of the role and function of the ocean seems to be of paramount importance in recent years, constituting the basic tool for the promotion of healthy and sustainable marine environment, and a target area of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In this study, the content knowledge of elementary school students (grades 3-6)...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Ocean Literacy (OL) is a multifaceted issue, involving not only scientific knowledge, but also environmental, societal and economical implications. Within this scenario, Scienza under 18 Isontina and MARE FVG - Maritime Technology Cluster FVG developed an innovative project aimed at promoting OL and blue careers among students of Friuli Venezia Gi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
EMSEA Med is an international Mediterranean group of educators and scientists/researchers. It was established in 2015 within EMSEA on the basis of the common regional origin and of the shared interest for the promotion of OL along the Mediterranean Sea. This “Sea in the middle of the Earth”, the largest and deepest enclosed sea on Earth, cradle of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Mediterranean Sea region is the cradle of modern civilization, a biodiversity hotspot, the most visited touristic area and home to over 460 million people. Increasing stresses due to tourism, fishing, coastal development, pollution, shipping and climate change are threatening the fragile Mediterranean Sea ecosystem. Sustainable development of t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Building on the EMSEA experience, a group of researchers and educators from the Mediterranean Region, EMSEA-MED, started a collaborative and innovative effort to promote the ocean literacy principles in the region, and to adapt them to the specificities of the Mare Nostrum. The Mediterranean Sea is not only considered the cradle of civilization, b...
Article
Full-text available
In the Mediterranean Sea, as well as in other parts of the word, intense bottom trawling threatens deep and mesophotic assemblages, compromising mainly the survivorship of erect organisms and of the habitat complexity they shape. Protection of species able to affect their habitats, by increasing spatial complexity and enhancing interspecific intera...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the wide distribution of zoanthids, little is known about their pattern of reproduction. Here we investigate the reproductive biology of two Mediterranean species, the common Parazoanthus axinellae (Schmidt) and the rare Savalia savaglia (Bertoloni). For both species, samples were collected during an annual cycle, from January to December 2...
Article
Ecosystem resilience to climate anomalies is related to the physiological plasticity of organisms. To characterize the physiological response of some common Mediterranean gorgonians to fluctuations in temperature, four species (Paramuricea clavata, Eunicella singularis, Eunicella cavolinii and Corallium rubrum) were maintained in aquaria, in which...
Article
Mass mortality events of benthic invertebrates in the temperate north-western (NW) Mediterranean Sea have been observed in recent seasons. A 16 month in situ study in the Ligurian Sea (NW Mediterranean Sea) demonstrated that the occurrence of Paramuricea clavata mortality episodes were concomitant to a condition of prolonged high sea surface temper...
Article
A massive attack of caprellids is reported here, that is related to a local mortality event of gorgonians in North Sulawesi. Three species of sea fans were affected by the presence of Metaprotella sandalensis, a caprellid widely distributed in the Indo-Pacific. The degree of damage here documented was in relation to the skeletal features of the gor...
Article
Full-text available
From 2001 to 2003 a population of P. clavata has been studied in an area south of Leghorn, 300 m from the coast, between 26 and 32 m depth. In the summer 2003 an extended event of mortality has striken the entire population, in relation with an anomalous temperature increase. The observed relationship suggests the possibility to use P. clavata as a...

Riassunto – Le anomalie climatiche, che si stanno registrando sempre più frequentemente, hanno gravi ripercussioni ambientali non solo nell'ambiente terrestre ma anche marino. Soprattutto in quest'ultimo caso manca la possibilità di condurre monitoraggi estesi ed a lungo termine. Tale limite compromette una adeguata comprensione dei fenomeni, che s...
