Predicting the future of the ocean from signatures of the past: Using marine sediment archives to understand adaptation of marine plankton to a changing environment Internal

MPlankAdapt

Activity Overview

Type: Foresight Workshop
Start Date: June 4, 2018
End Date: June 6, 2018
Venue: Finnish Environment Institute, Helsinki, Finland
Contact: Anke Kremp
E-mail: anke.kremp [at] ymparisto.fi
Funding Call: EuroMarine 2017 call for FWS and WG proposals
Total Budget: €7,500
Funds Granted: €7,500

Manager(s): Anke Kremp

Objective

The invited consortium of the workshop proposed here will bring together researchers working across a range of trophic levels, from viruses to zooplankton and even fish, within the fields of genomics and ancient DNA, resurrection ecology, evolutionary biology, biodiversity and climate modelling to set a horizon for this relatively new, but rapidly developing research area. The state of the art of the field will be reviewed, and the challenges and areas of development identified.

Expected outcomes

As an outcome it is anticipated that there will be a position paper drafted on the potential of marine resurrection ecology and on the necessary actions to establish and advance this field. The aim is to produce a roadmap for the coming decade that will serve as a framework for future research in the field. A concept for a first joint project proposal will be discussed and drafted that would strengthen the network and the resurrection community as such, but also open concrete possibilities for joint research. The funding possibilities for training networks of young scientists to learn state-of-the-art methods and technologies will be explored or prepared.
