Biodiversity has become an increasingly important element of ICES’ work and is one of the research topics identified in the ICES Science Plan as being of strategic impor-tance to the advisory needs of ICES. The European Commission’s (EC) recent Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) also highlights the importance of marine bio-diversity, and so requests for information from ICES on the monitoring, assessment and integration of biodiversity information will likely increase in the future. A range of ICES Expert Groups are currently involved in particular aspects of marine biodi-versity, and WGBIODIV aims to provide the ICES community with an improved ca-pacity to coordinate integration and synthesis of biodiversity information.
