How and why is global change affecting marine biodiversity? How does this change affect marine ecosystems and their functions? And how can society adapt or mitigate consequences? Scientists at the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) investigate these questions. The institute is a cooperation of the AWI with the University of Oldenburg.
