Human activities have degraded extensive areas of coastal habitats. Abiotic and biotic stressors (such as temperature, artificial light, invasive species and noise) may interact to produce combined impacts on biodiversity, physiological responses (reproduction and growth, for example) and ecosystem functioning.

We need to understand the full range of these impacts in order to manage them effectively. The projects available will investigate common ecological impacts of coastal cities as well as the development and application of practical solutions.
