Many pieces in place in the EcoChange puzzle


During two days Ecochange scientists have presented and discussed results from the extensive ongoing research. Creating a picture of the effects of climate changes on the food web of the Baltic Sea is like building a large jigsaw puzzle. Every little piece contributes to the overall picture. But the Baltic ecosystem is complex, and the more knowledge is shared, the more it grows as a never-ending story.
