Abstract

This project is focused on producing a series of Conceptual Ecological Models for the marine habitat ‘Shallow Sublittoral Sand’.

Summary

One method for selecting suitable indicators is the use of conceptual ecological models (CEMs). CEMs allow current knowledge about the links in marine ecosystems to be drawn together in a diagrammatic way to highlight the ecological aspects of marine ecosystems that are important for monitoring. CEMs have been utilised for various purposes, including to facilitate understanding of the processes which occur in sensitive ecosystems and to examine the role of invasive species in restored ecosystems.
