Scientific news

This section presents a watch of the latest important scientific works relative to Marine Protected Areas management in the Mediterranean and around the world when relevant.

This service to the Mediterranean MPA community falls in the framework of the 2013-2017 strategy for the MedPAN network and its scientific strategy that aims to develop MedPAN towards a network of knowledge, information, anticipation and synthesis.

Every month the results of the watch are presented below. Don't hesitate to search for a pubication, over 500 of them have already been selected since 2013.
