The aims of the project are: (a) to develop new methods that are based on biological responses of marine organisms in order to serve as immediate indicators of prediction, monitoring, and management of anthropogenic impacts in the marine coastal areas of Greece, (b) to estimate the ecological status of the Amvrakikos gulf (North-Western Greece) based on the development and biological processes of the marine organisms, (c) to predict great ecological changes on marine ecosystems impacting by broad anthropogenic activities.
