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.

Work in progress

BONUS BAMBI is producing a website about genetic diversity in the Baltic Sea, including recommendations for management. We appreciate your comments to susanne.liljenstrom@marine.gu.se
