Abstract: This work presents a catalogue compiled under the frame of DEVOTES while focusing on some aspects of marine biodiversity monitoring carried out in the Mediterranean Sea. Results are discussed in relation to the requirements of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive. Findings reveal data gaps and uneven monitoring coverage at the level of descriptors, components, pressures and sub-regions. The results highlight areas of attention and this is perceived as an opportunity for building synergies to support wider monitoring of components-habitats-pressures.
