This cluster groups four projects (MAREBASSE, TROPHOS, BALANS and GAUFRE) of which the main objectives form a great overlap. By stimulating data-, knolwedge- and methodology exchange, this cluster tries to give a comparative benifit towards these projects. This cluster could also provide a framework for new research needs and the enhancement of the communication between the partners and towards the policy makers.
