Aquatic Ecosystem Services in a Changing World
Integrated modelling of the consequences of terrestrial activities and climate change for aquatic biodiversity and ecosystem services
Land2Sea aims to improve the management of natural aquatic resources using a combination of empirical research, expert opinion and integrated modelling to develop a comprehensive framework for assessing the consequences of human activities on water quality and biodiversity.
Bringing together a multidisciplinary team of aquatic ecologists, ecosystem modellers, socio-cultural researchers and economists from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Canada and the USA.
Four case studies located in Ireland, Germany, Sweden and Canada allow researchers to explore the impacts of change across a range of natural and socio-economic contexts
Formed under a joint call of the Belmont Forum, Biodiversa and the European Commission (2019 – 2021), Land2Sea partners also receive support locally from a range of national funding agencies
