Ecosystems will play a key role in the future of our planet, as they are capable of great adaptabilty and are resilient to climate (e.g. Bulleri et al., 2018). However, they are also vulnerable to multifactorial disturbances (e.g. anthropic/Gómez et al., 2022). An ecosystem’s long-term response to global change (climate change, biodiversity loss, changes in water cycling, etc.) is also affected by the natural, epistemic, and aleatory uncertainty of the environment.The methods used to evaluate an ecosystem mean that the services it provides are difficult to quantify and predict. While ecosystem conservation strategies should come from a combination of different perspectives, they are commonly tackled via independent disciplines, such as coastal management, coastal engineering, ecology, water quality, etc. and therefore, insights into the long-term conservation of our ecosystems is still a key challenge. The starting point to address ecosystem conservation on a changing planet must be a multidisciplinary characterization of the physical and environmental context.
