Short Description
Summary Role
Prof. Dr. Steven Degraer started his scientific career in benthic ecology of shallow temperate marine ecosystems at Ghent University. After his PhD research (1999), his research focus broadened: from temperate to tropical ecosystems, from sandy to rocky coasts, from benthos to avifauna and from fundamental to applied research. Marine management, focusing on nature conservation and sustainable use and exploitation of the marine resources, has always been thé red line through his work, which finally brought him to RBINS' Management Unit of the North Sea Mathematical Models in 2008. He is now coordinating MUMM's Marine Ecosystem Management team with a broad expertise in marine mammals, seabirds, rocky shore fauna and invasive species, and underwater noise, embedded in an ecosystem management context. He further holds a research and teaching guest professorship at the Biology Department of Ghent University. Dr. Steven Degraer (co)authored over 300 publications, of which 89 peer reviewed.
