The Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) is calling abstracts for its fifth IMBIZO: Marine biosphere research for a sustainable ocean: Linking ecosystems, future states and resource management, which is partly sponsored by APN.

The meeting will consist of three concurrent but interacting workshops, with joint plenary and poster sessions:

  1. Critical constraints on future projections of marine systems (co-Chairs: Laurent Bopp and Eric Galbraith)
