The group

MedRecover has been recognised as a consolidated research group by the Government of Catalonia’s Agency for the Administration of University and Research Grants (Agència de Gestió d’Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca -AGAUR-).

The main goal of MedRecover research group is to contribute to the conservation of marine benthic communities in the Mediterranean through innovative and original approaches.

The MedRecover group is focused in the study of emblematic rocky benthic communities thriving between 0 and 300 m depth such as the macroalgals beds dominated by Cystoseira species, coralligenous banks and deep cold coral assemblages.
