AbstractA Catalogue of Biodiversity Indicators useful for the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) was developed by the DEVOTES FP7 Project with the aim of providing the basis for assessing the environmental status of European seas. It is available online through the DEVOTool 0.64 software application that allows navigating a database of indicators related to the following MSFD descriptors: biological biodiversity, non-indigenous species, food webs, and seafloor integrity. The catalogue (v.6) contains over 500 indicators used by different initiatives, in national and international contexts. A comprehensive overview of these indicators is given: descriptions, data requirements, developmental status, geographical coverage and applicable habitats, biodiversity components and descriptors targeted, and related human pressures. The DEVOTool provides a query and analysis function for browsing the metadata, extracting and ranking lists of indicators best fulfilling pre-set criteria; enabling users to search, for example, for indicators suitable to fill in an identified gap or address a particular pressure in a marine area. The major strengths and gaps of the indicator set (at EU level) allow to focus the development of new indicators where it is most urgently needed, and to foster transfer of know-how across marine regions.
