Abstract

Summary

This project is focused on producing a series of Conceptual Ecological Models (CEMs) for the marine habitat ‘Shallow Sublittoral Mixed Sediments’.

CEMs are diagrammatic representations of the influences and processes which occur within an ecosystem. They can be used to identify critical aspects of an ecosystem which may be taken forward for further study, or serve as the basis for the selection of indicators for environmental monitoring purposes. The models produced by this project are control diagrams, representing the unimpacted state of the environment free from anthropogenic pressures.
