IMBER e-News n°87 – July 2015

Version imprimable de cet article

ESSAS name change

To reflect its increasing interest in the Arctic, IMBER’s regional programme ESSAS has elected to change its name from the Ecosystem Studies of Sub-Arctic Seas to Ecosystem Studies of Subarctic and Arctic Seas.

The shortened version will remain as ESSAS. While continuing to maintain strong research on comparative studies in the subarctic, ESSAS will be expanding its work, especially on the interaction between the subarctic and the Arctic, as well as climate change effects on Arctic ecosystems.


We apologise for the delay in notifying applicants about the outcome of their abstract submissions for IMBIZO IV. We had a great response and hope to be able to send out the notices very soon. Looking forward to a great IMBIZO in Trieste in October !
