BAMBI - Baltic Sea Marine Biodiversity

Our overall goal is to assess and improve capacities of marine species to deal with the current challenge of a rapidly changing Baltic Sea environment. To reach this goal we need to understand the potential of organisms to evolve new adaptations and how management should be framed to support this.

...addressing the potential of adaptation to climate change.


BaltGene website disseminates new research on genetic biodiversity in the Baltic Sea. The site presents genetic data on key species, including scientifically based advice for management and conservation of genetic biodiversity.
