Human impacts on marine functional connectivity

1 - Pervasive human impacts on the environment and trends in marine connectivity

Konsantina Agiadi (University of Vienna, Austria)
Fabien Moullec (NIOZ, Netherlands)
​​​​​Humans have depended on and impacted marine ecosystems for thousands of years. From fishing and aquaculture to habitat destruction, pollution, climate change, and the expansion of offshore renewable energy and mining or fossil fuel extraction, impacts have diversified, often becoming chronic, modifying benthic and pelagic seascapes and ultimately impacting marine connectivity. Moreover, human activities have directly resulted in the forced, intentional and unintentional connection of marine populations, and the transport of non-indigenous species into new areas. 

This session calls for studies on temporal changes in marine connectivity patterns associated with human impacts, and their consequences on resource or ecosystem resilience.
