Journal Article
Smith, C. J., Papadopoulou, K., Barnard, S., Mazik, K., Elliott, M., Patrício, J., …Borja, A. (2016). Managing the marine environment, conceptual models and assessment considerations for the European marine strategy framework directive. Frontiers in Marine Science, 3(AUG), (1-19). doi:10.3389/fmars.2016.00144. ISSN 2296-7745

Conceptual models summarize, visualize and explain actual or predicted situations and how they might be tackled. In recent years, Pressure-State-Response (P-S-R) frameworks have been central to conceptualizing marine ecosystem issues and then transla... Read More
