Research outcome leaflets
Five leaflets have been created that disseminate MERP research into specific areas; these are available to view in web form on the 'Research outcomes' pages on this site or as PDF downloads below:
1 minute in the life of a marine biologist
Dr Leigh Howarth attempts to rapidly summarize his research in the Irish and Celtic Sea within just one minute (and fails by 8 seconds)

Introduction to Marine Ecosystem Modelling
Susan Kay, Numerical Modeller at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, explains marine ecosystem modelling: what is a model, why do we use them and how they are helping us to understand complex environmental issues, such as climate change.
Introducing Marine Ecosystem Services
This video provides an overview of the ecosystem services approach to understanding the marine environment and its application in VECTORS, an EU-funded marine research project.

Ecosystem services and Biodiversity - Science for Environment Policy
To keep Europe’s ecosystems healthy, we need to protect #biodiversity. How can the ecosystem service approach help? And how can we capture people’s more deeply held values beyond mere money? Watch the video produced by Science for Environment Policy about the different tools in the ecosystem services toolbox.
