Biodiversity is an increasingly important element of ICES’ work, and is one of the research topics of strategic importance identified in the ICES Science Plan. The Euro-pean Commission’s (EC) recent Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) high-lights the importance of marine biodiversity, and so requests for information from ICES on the monitoring, assessment and integration of biodiversity information will undoubtedly increase in the future. A range of ICES Expert Groups are currently in-volved in various aspects of marine biodiversity, and WGBIODIV aims to provide the ICES community with an improved capacity to coordinate, integrate and synthesise biodiversity information.
