Youk Greeve

Bivalves are common in coastal areas around the world, where they play important roles in the overall structure and functions of marine ecosystems. They are known to contribute to the regulation of water quality, drive nutrient cycles and promote biodiversity. This project seeks to answer questions on how much bivalves play a role in ecosystem processes at large geographical scales. To do this, we're exploring methods to link models of the distribution and abundance of bivalves along the Swedish west coast with information on the local effects of bivalves to assess their combined impact.
