b) concepts of ecosystem functioning, in particular on the role of fish in ecosystems and interactions between different trophic levels/ guilds/ communities.

Special attention will be given to the effects of climate change on fish biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, as experts from the EU-project RECLAIM (Resolving Climatic Impacts on fish stocks) will also participate.

The workshop is free of charge for anyone wishing to participate. We encourage PhD students and members of the MarBEF network to participate.
