Titre : MED-CORE From river catchement areas to the sea : a comparative and integrated approach to the ecology of mediterranean coastal zones for sustainable management

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : ICA3-CT-2002-10003FP5-INCO 2

Durée : Date de début : 2002-12-01, Date de fin : 2005-11-30

Descriptif
Target systems are sand beaches and their ecosystems. The research will extend to adjacent systems influencing and/or being influenced by the defined system, contributing to coastal equilibrium. The project aims at : definition of guidelines and ecological criteria for preservation of environmental quality through the identification of functional links between elements of coastal ecosystems and influencing zones in the Mediterranean ; development of early warning indicators of degradation and long-term indicators of sustainability of coastal ecosystems ; preparation of a manual regarding the application of ecological indicators of coastal quality, to be used by environmental managers and decision-makers . A transdisciplinary characterisation will be conducted at chosen sites, which share common problems of the Region, and the analysis of the property of different ecological indicators, from landscape to species and genetic levels, will be made.
