Bambi - Baltic Sea marine biodiversity - addressing the potential of adaptation to climate change

The overall goal is to assess and improve capacities of marine species to deal with the current challenge of a rapidly changing Baltic Sea environment. 

To reach this goal we need to understand the potential of organisms to evolve new adaptations and how management should be framed to support this.

Overall objectives of Bambi are to answer these urgent questions:

  1. Will species and ecosystems of marine origin adapt and survive the coming 50-100 years inside the Baltic Sea?
  2. If so, what is needed in terms of population sizes, population connectivity and genetic variation?
  3. What governance structures, policy instruments and management measures can mitigate losses of marine Baltic Sea species? 

Bambi is a research project that started in January 2014 and will be running for four years with participants from Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Germany.
