BNI contributes to Special issue of AMBIO: BONUS+ in Support of the Ecosystem Approach to Management in the Baltic Sea

BNI researchers from BNI Sweden, Denmark and Finland contribute with several articles in a new special issue of AMBIO, which provides a synopsis of the results from the projects in the BONUS+ programme 2009-2011.

The Baltic Nest Institute has been one of many research institutes performing state of the art, policy driven and multidisciplinary research during the BONUS+ programme 2009-2011.

The BONUS-projects have addressed environmental challenges in the Baltic Sea as defined by the Baltic Sea Action Plan, or considered the environmental governance and decision making within the Baltic Sea context in general.

Eutrophication, biodiversity, hazardous substances, maritime activities, and the environment governance have been addressed, as have crosscutting issues, such as the impact of climate change, maritime spatial planning and impacts of future development on ecosystem services.
