Baltic Sea marine biodiversity - addressing the potential of adaptation to climate change
01/01/2014 - 31/12/2017
A major challenge to the Baltic Sea ecosystem is adapting to the climate change and linked changes in salinity, ice-cover etc. Unique genetic compositions of most of the marine populations add to Baltic Sea ecosystem vulnerability. Genetic variation in adaptive traits is a key fa...
