Role

I am currently working on a project exploring the role of management in delivering ecosystem services in Marine Protected Areas. This work is funded by The Prince Albert of Monaco II Foundation. This work specifically involves modelling the complex links between ecosystem services, the functions that support them, and the impacts of anthrophogenic activities on the sustained delivery of these services.
