Integrated Marine Biosphere Research: Ocean sustainability under global change for the benefit of society
Interdisciplinary research spanning natural and social sciences and society is needed to inform decision-making for the sustainable use and conservation of marine resources and services for the ultimate benefit. All Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) activities, including the recent 2019 Future Oceans2 Open Science Conference, are informed by the following objectives:
- Understanding and quantifying the state and variability of marine ecosystems,
- Improving scenarios, predictions and projections of future ocean-human systems at multiple scales and,
- Improving and achieving sustainable ocean governance.
IMBeR invites submissions (perspective or opinion papers, policy briefs, research articles or reviews) relating to any of these objectives for a special issue of Frontiers in Marine Science.
Deadline for abstract submission is 23 November 2019.
