Short CV

Marta Lobão Lopes, born in 1983, is graduated in Biology by the University of Aveiro (UA) (2007) where she completed her M.Sc. degree in Marine Biology (2008). In 2014, she received her Ph.D. degree in Biology with specialization in Marine Biology focused on ecological quality assessment in transitional systems, working in Ria de Aveiro, Portugal. In her academic career she had the opportunity to work on Environmental quality in transitional systems using taxonomic and non-taxonomic indices and functional indicators; Nutrient dynamics and environmental quality; Ecological processes and functional characteristics that support coastal ecosystem services; Evaluation of the effects of human activities on biological systems and Impact of invasive species in ecosystem functions/services. Since 2010 she collaborated in three projects, ‘From Air to Water’, ‘EEMA - Ecological quality status of coastal and transitional waters’ and ‘Environmental monitoring of the Guia marine outfall’. Since 2011 Marta Lobão Lopes has published 7 papers in international peer reviewed journals, over 12 communications in national/international scientific meetings and 1 e-book. Nowadays, she collaborates with the SmartBioR Project (Enhancement of Endogenous Marine Biological Resources), an innovative program in the context of the sustainable use of Marine Biological Resources and is coordinator of the BioPradaRia Project - Restoration, management and conservation of biodiversity and biological resources associated with Ria de Aveiro seagrass ecosystems. BioPradaRia aims to contribute to enhancing the protection and restoration of aquatic biodiversity and aquatic ecosystems within the framework of sustainable fishing activities, particularly for a better management or conservation of marine biological resources, having Ria de Aveiro as a case study.

Area of scientific activity


Marine and Estuarine Biology/Ecology: Benthic patterns and processes in coastal systems, soft sediments. Ecotoxicology of estuarine sediments. Determination of environmental quality in transitional systems using taxonomic and non taxonomic indices and functional indicators.
Ecology and biodiversity of coastal ecosystems, considering: anthropic and environmental chemical impacts; Nutrient dynamics and environmental quality; Ecological processes and services features provided by coastal ecosystems, in particular wetlands.
Contribution to an integrated management of coastal zones taking into account knowledge of the scientific basis, such as environmental policies and key actors.
