Conservation biology remains a central pillar of nature conservation and decision-making. In particular, the place and role of MPAs in species conservation strategies needs to be questioned, for the sake of efficiency.
Knowing exactly what to expect in terms of conservation results is crucial both before MPA creation, to select appropriate sites, and after, to ensure effective management. To assess these results, scientists will discuss and provide feedback on approaches and methods implemented at various scales.
Within a given area or biome, what information and data do MPA managers need to gain an accurate understanding of the biodiversity and of its interactions? In answering this question, scientists and managers will consider especially benthic habitats, migratory species and the issue of biological connectivity.
