Welcome to ClimCARES
ClimCARES project is dedicated to assess the potential impacts of climate change on coastal benthic ecosystems at regional scale - the Northern Western Mediterranean basin. It is primarily focused on the development of an original strategy combining numerical simulations and thermotolerance of key species. Thermotolerance responses will be obtained through compilation of field observations conducted at regional scale and experimental work in aquarium. The main aims are:
- the development of realistic warming scenarios of the coastal areas at regional scale,
- assesing the biological responses to warming
- the development of maps of potential impacts for the conservation of target species/populations/communities.
