This page displays the result of: Ayata SD, Irisson J-O, Aubert A, Berline L, Dutay JC, Mayot N, Nierblas A-E, d'Ortenzio F, Palmiéri J, Reygondeau G, Rossi V, Guieu C (2017) Regionalisation of the Mediterranean basin, a MERMEX synthesis, Progress in Oceanography x(x):xx-xx. and should be cited as such.

This study was conducted as part of the WP5 MERMEX/MISTRALS project and is a contribution to the international SOLAS, IMBER and LOICZ programs. The lead authors are grateful to Pr. Philippe Koubbi (MNHN) for initiating (eco)regionalisation studies of the Mediterranean Sea at the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche-sur-mer (LOV, UPMC/CNRS). Some initial thoughts that have led to this synthesis were also supported by the PlankMed action of WP5 MERMEX and by the EC FP7 PERSEUS Project. The authors are grateful to F Micheli and N Levin for openly sharing their data regarding cumulative impacts and conservation schemes in the Mediterranean Sea.
