Job Description:
Posidonia oceanica seagrass of the Mediterranean is believed to be the oldest living organism on Earth. It can be over 100,000 years old. The eastern Aegean still supports extensive meadows of Posidonia, while in other parts of the Aegean they have been damaged or destroyed as a result of urbanization of the coastal areas and marine pollution. The EU and national legislation protecting this priority habitat is not enforced in many parts of the Mediterranean, therefore mapping, monitoring and protecting the Posidonia meadows is of the utmost importance. Our current work includes:
• Mapping Posidonia seagrass meadows with a combination of boat, kayak and drone-based surveys.
• Assessing the impact caused by illegal trawling activity and invasive species and aquaculture.
• Experimental replantation of seagrass.
• Experimental installation of sustainable mooring systems over seagrass meadows.
