PhD project



Submarine canyons are complex and heterogeneous geomorphologic structures highly relevant for the biodiversity and productivity of continental margins. These marine ecosystems play a key role providing invaluable goods and services for human well-being but are also increasingly subjected to the effects of anthropogenic pressure and climate change. The natural isolation of canyons may act synergistically with these changes with implications to population connectivity and the maintenance of biodiversity. By using the multidisciplinary approach of network analysis this project aims at synthesizing the current knowledge on species distribution patterns and habitat heterogeneity in canyons to produce a global vision of their macroecology and contribute to understand deep-sea connectivity. Network analyses display a real-world framework for the improvement of ecological theories, biodiversity management and development of conservation strategies.
