Projectomschrijving

The aim of the project is to assess present and future impacts of invasive alien seaweeds on the North-Atlantic coastal biodiversity. The project aims specifically at predicting the effects of alien seaweeds under climate variability and rising sea surface temperatures [1] in the North-Atlantic. This will be done by addressing temperature effects on expansion rate and range shifts, abundance and ecological functioning of invasive or potentially invasive alien seaweeds.
