Marta Coll

Institut de Ciències del Mar (CSIC-Spain)

Marta Coll is Senior Researcher at ICM-CSIC. She is part of the Research Group on “Functioning and Vulnerability of Marine Ecosystems” at the Marine Renewal Resources Department. She holds a PhD in Ecology, Animal Biology and Vegetal Biology.


Marta’s research focuses on understanding patterns and processes that characterize marine ecosystems and, in particular, changes of, and threats to, marine biodiversity and food webs. Specifically, she studies community and food-web dynamics linked with human activities (such as fisheries, climate change, eutrophication, and invasive species), and how these translate into changes in ecosystem structure and functioning of marine ecosystems, and services that humans obtain from the ocean.
