Marine functional connectivity: a rich, multidisciplinary emerging field of research
Organizers: Audrey Darnaude, Federica Costantini, Ewan Hunter, Yael Teff-Seker, Myron Peck
Editors: Audrey Darnaude, Susanne E. Tanner, Maria Beger, Oscar Gaggiotti, Alejandro Gallego, Ewan Hunter, Pei-Yuan Qian, Myron Peck

This Theme Section presents current advances in the emerging field of marine functional connectivity (MFC), which refers to all the fluxes (of individuals, genes, and matter) resulting from the collective movements of marine organisms. Studying MFC is critical for understanding the complex relationships between marine species and their lifetime habitats, to accurately quantify worldwide fluxes of matter, and to predict how environmental drivers may alter marine ecosystem services. Contributions to this Theme Section illustrate the range of approaches applied in contemporary MFC studies and the diversity of ecosystems and taxa studied worldwide. They enrich current understanding of the role of MFC in ecosystem functioning and pave the way to improving MFC knowledge use for the conservation and management of marine and coastal habitats. This Theme Section was organized by COST Action CA19107 SEA-UNICORN, sponsored by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).
