Report on effects of changing drivers on pelagic and benthic species composition and production : BIO-C3 Deliverable, D2.1. ; EU Bonusproject BIO-C3
The Baltic Sea experienced large changes in community composition, yet it is largely unknown how these changes affect ecosystem functioning. The objectives of BIO-C3 Task 2.1 is to improve our understanding on how biodiversity changes at the base of the food web propagate to higher trophic levels and affect ecosystem functioning. This overall question was addressed by focusing on processes in benthic, plankton and fish communities.
