The research project will consist in the elaboration of conceptual models to guide the selection of the target species on which experimental work and the modelling approach will be carried out. This elaboration will be based on i) the information available on the planktonic community of the Gulf of Naples, with particular attention to variations in biomass, community composition and synthetic descriptors (e.g.resource stocks, specific diversity, size classes, life strategies) and ii) on the main scale of variability of biotic and abiotic parameters, including changes in the phenology of phyto- and zoo-planktonic species. The development of zero-dimensional models on the target species and within the selected scenaria will be coupled with experimental work aimed at the calibration and validation of the models, and will be focussed on key-biological traits of the organisms
