Marta Pascual The Ecosystem service valuation (ESV) approach is being developed as a vehicle to integrate the ecological and economic considerations needed to take into account for good management decisions. This approach of ESV deals, not only with the monetary, but also with the non-monetary values derived from these ES to society. Understanding the link between the functioning of ecosystems to human welfare is crucial for many decision-making contexts as shown in recent Marine Spatial Planning frameworks.



Short CV

Dr. Marta Pascual is an Ikerbasque Post-Doctoral Researcher. She has 6 years of professional experience in different lines of marine and coastal research applied to Marine Spatial Planning (MSP); Ecosystem Services Mapping and Modelling; Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM); Biological Valuation (BV) and Ecosystem Services Valuation (ESV). Participated as researcher in the following projects: FP7-OCEAN-2009 MESMA (Monitoring and Evaluation of Spatially Managed Areas); BIZKAIZET (Catalogación de las áreas de especial interés para la conservación de los cetáceos en el golfo de Bizkaia); FP7-OCEAN- 2011-3 PERSEUS (Policy-oriented marine Environmental Research for the Southern European Seas); FP7-OCEAN-2011 CoCoNET (Towards COast to COast NETworks of marine protected areas); GEF project: Integration of climatic variability and change into national strategies to implement the ICZM Protocol in the Mediterranean; DG-MARE Call for Tenders No MARE/2013/11: Assistance Mechanism for the Atlantic Action Plan – Spanish Focal Point. Her current research interests are focused on ecosystem services mapping, modelling and evaluation using the ARIES; as well as in spatial planning management, socio-economics’, equity, governance, decision-support tools and the implementation of European directives (WFD, MSP and MSFD). Her work has also succeeded in publications in international peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Pascual has extensive knowledge using: Databases management; Geographic Information Systems (ArcGIS; Idrisi Kilimanjaro, QuantumGIS, GVSIG); Statistical Analysis (univariate and multivariate); Software for Biological Analysis (Statgraphics, Statistica, Surfer, PRIMER, R); Remote Sensing analysis software (BILKO, BEAM); Interactions models simulations (Vensim; hunt-prey; climatic; environmental, etc.); Starting in Bayesian modelling (Genie, Bayesia) and Artificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services modelling (ARIES, Thinklab, Thinkcap); Marxan user; Biological Valuation Teacher; Spatial Multicriteria Analysis (SMCA). She has undertaken several internship stays as part of her research and excellence training: the University of Tasmania (Australia, 2005-2006); the Oceanlab (Scotland, 2007); the University of Southampton (UK, 2007-2009); the University of Ghent (Belgium, 2009); the University of Hull (UK, 2010); the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence on Environmental Decisions (ARC-CEED) of the University of Queensland (Australia, 2014-2015). She has also been (twice) chairperson at International conferences, as well as reviewer for Journal of Environmental Management, Ecological Economics, Ecological Processes, Journal of Sea Research, Ocean & Coastal Management, Ecosystem Services and Journal of Environmental Conservation. She has also been part of an Advisory Experts Panel for the FP7 call ENV.2013 second stage call at the EU Commission and for the Symfonia grant of the National Science Centre of Poland. Acting as expert at these panels has allowed her to further develop her knowledge in research proposal´s writing and funding requirements. She is member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Coastal Development since 2013 and member of the International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade (IIFET) since 2014.
