Marina Paula Dolbeth Henriques da Silva

Marina Dolbeth is an Assistant Researcher at CIIMAR-UP. She holds a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Coimbra. Her work has focused on studying the structure and functioning of estuarine and coastal ecosystems under natural, anthropogenic, and climate-induced changes. She has worked with plant, benthic invertebrate, and fish assemblages to understand the consequences of altered diversity in these coastal ecosystems and how this information can aid in decision-support frameworks for environmental management. More recently, she has worked with habitat-forming species as Nature-Based Solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and with Ocean Literacy initiatives.
