AbstractThe ecosystems of the Israeli Mediterranean coastline and exclusive economic zone (EEZ) have undergone significant changes in recent decades due to numerous global and local stressors (Fig.1). The region, also known as the Levant, has the hottest, saltiest and most nutrient poor waters in the Mediterranean Sea, and marine species may be naturally close to their physiological tolerance limits thus highly sensitive to environmental change. The naturally extreme environment of the eastern Mediterranean has become even more extreme to its native species (almost all of Atlantic origin) in the past few decades due to rapid climate change, and regional stressors such as species invasions through the Suez Canal. Communities have already shifted considerably through collapses of native species and the increasing dominance of invasive species, mainly of IndoPacific origin. Fishing has also reduced fish populations. In recent years, new threats have emerged, including large desalination plants and gas and oil platforms soon to be exploiting extensive, newly discovered, offshore energy reservoirs. Yet, through all this time, little attention has been given to the inter-linkages among the different functions and services provided by this ecosystem, at economic, social, environmental and political dimensions
