As part of the events planned for networking between projects (Action D.2) and for performance data collection on Posidonia oceanica transplants (Action B.2), on 30 and 31 October 2019 in the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara (Villasimius (CA) a series of activities were carried out between Life SEPOSSO and Life RES MARIS.
In particular, the underwater scientific operators of the Life SEPOSSO partnership (ISPRA, ARPAT, UNIROMA), together with the divers of the Capo Carbonara for Life RES MARIS, carried out a joint monitoring to assess the status of Posidonia oceanica transplantation as environmental restoration intervention during the work of Life RES MARIS. The transplant, already performed between autumn 2016 and spring 2017, and jointly monitored by the two projects in May 2018, appears without obvious losses in the transplanted cuttings. The data obtained from the monitoring will be evaluated within the activities of SEPOSSO, and will contribute to broaden the case history of the different types of transplant analyzed during the project.
Thanks to the collaboration established between the two Life projects and the Capo Carbonara AMP, the modalities for the test phase of the web platform (Posidonia Web Platform, PWP) have also been agreed, which is being implemented within the framework of SEPOSSO and which will support in managing the governance of works with possible impacts on the Posidonia habitat (Action B.3)
