MERCES WP2 workshop, 6-8 February 2017 (Yerseke, Netherlands)

MERCES just had a great meeting in Yerseke, Netherlands, in the frame of the research activities planned for Work Package 2 - Restoration of marine, shallow soft bottoms habitats. The meeting held on 6-8 February was a touch-base moment to define where we stand and how to proceed in defining knowledge gaps in soft-bottom restoration and criteria for successful restoration of ecosystem engineers in Europe and in the investigation of ecological interactions between ecosystem engineers (bivalves, seagrasses) and other species through comparative field surveys and experiments.

MERCES team had two intense working days but were fully rewarded by the positive outcome of their joint efforts! Find more pics from the WP2 meeting at the photogallery.
