Gaps. Microbial communities are known to play a crucial role in biogeochemical cycles, food webs and in functioning of marine ecosystems in general. Microbes are numerically dominant in marine environments and are characterized by pronounced diversity of metabolic potential. Nevertheless, this ecosystem component has been ignored by the MSFD so fa.r To date prokaryotes are ogical perturbations Introduction of microbial pathogens). Such understanding represents a small tip of the large thus prokaryotes' significant role in GES indiactors is not taken into account. – Taking into account microbial taxonomic and functional diversity and rapid response to environmental perturbations, the data on prokaryotic communities can potentially be incorporated into MFSD Descriptors D1. biodiversity, D4. food webs, D5. eutrophication, D8. contaminants. Such an approach would result in more comprehensive GES analysis. Recommendations – Being involved in key biochemical processes running in marine ecosystems as a sensitive and fast responding to environmental perturbations, microbial communities can be considered as potential sentinels of environmental changes. – Microbial communities are the essential component of MFSD Descriptor 1. Biodiversity. As the majority of marine prokaryotes are challenging or even impossible to grow in culture, 16S rRNA metagenomic assessment is the preferential method to uncover microbial communities taxonomic diversity. Yet, in order to make the results of such analyses more interpretable in terms of monitoring, indices relevant for the status of the Black Seaenvironment should be developed. Thus, it was proposes to test the ratio of specificfunctional prokaryotic groups relative abundance in future monitoring of the Black Sea. The suggested ratios were: (1) oxygenic photosynthesizers/oxygenic photosynthesizers and (2) sulphur reducing/sulphur oxidizing bacteria. The proposed indicators can be used for specific monitoring of Black Sea euxinic zone position, as a part of multimetric assessment. – Taking into account microbial biodegradation potential, the data on prokaryotic communities can be used in monitoring of MFSD Descriptor 4. Food webs and8. Contaminants. It has been shown that both microbial taxonomic and metabolic patterns become reorganized when exposed to pollution with hydrocarbon-containing contaminants. Therefore, the ecosystem response towards environmental pollution can potentially be monitored with integrative indicator incorporating...
Gaps. Different periods of observations and differences in monitoring methodology negatively affect the comparability of datacollected in different years and in different regions of the Black Sea. – Monitoring in a limited period, for example, only in the warm season does not allow evaluation and comparing annual cycles of phytoplankton. Variations in seasonal dynamics in different regions of the Black Sea exacerbate this problem. – Different histories and level of knowledge of phytoplankton studies in various Black Sea regions, limited availability of data for the reference period (historical data,)as well as changes in sampling and processing methods make it difficult to assess long-term trends in phytoplankton. – The lack of harmonised interoperable databasescontaining data on primary processing of samples limits the use of various structural and integral phytoplankton indicators for assessing the ecological and environmental status of various regions of the Black Sea. – Assessment of phytoplankton biodiversity in different regions is associated with both the objective and subjective difficulties. One of them is the complexity of taxonomic identification of phytoplankton species.The varying amounts of sample material collected during monitoring also can affect the accuracy of estimates of biodiversity in the region. – Based on the importance of regular studies of phytoplankton in the Black Sea, it can be assumed that at present the main gap in our knowledge is insufficient understanding of the physical processes that affect phytoplankton and biological productivity. Without fundamental understanding of the natural mechanisms governing the growth of phytoplankton in the dee-pwater basin and shelf waters, it is impossible to separate the effects of climate change, eutrophication and pollution from natural changes in the ecosystem.
Gaps. It was recommended to conduct national monitoring/sampling at ZPF twice a year- in the first decade of April and then in the first decade of September. Unfortunately, this recommendation was not implemented within the NPMS UA 2019. For this reason, data on macrophytes floristic diversity of ZPF were obviously reduced.
Gaps. The Company shall use its good faith efforts enter into and deliver, prior to Closing, each of the proposed Contracts listed on Section 6.25 of the Company Disclosure Schedule. Such Contracts shall be in substantially the form provided to Buyer prior to the date of this Agreement, and upon their execution shall resolve the gaps identified on Section 4.11(b) of the Company Disclosure Schedule.
Gaps. ‌ The identified projects provide a starting point for future growth, however, there continue to be barriers such as lack of awareness among potential small- and medium-sized exporters (SMEs) about the benefits of exporting and the opportunities that exist in foreign markets. Additionally, support is needed to help SMEs understand and work with international value chains. This unmet need is further complicated by threats to ongoing investments in international trade tools and strategies. There is limited State Trade and Export Program (STEP) funding to assist SMEs with trade mission reimbursement, further complicated by a small regional export staff (three total). Regional challenges extend to the building of Michigan’s presence among potential trade partners. The state now has a lower economic standing, which global competitors have played upon as they seek to build trade opportunities for themselves. Thus, international perceptions of Michigan’s economic strength and return on investment, although improving, remain relatively poor, and resources to promote investment opportunities in Michigan are lacking. The region also lacks a well-funded investment system for the acquisition of foreign-owned entities, which could help meet value-chain needs in the region.
Gaps. Explain how you plan to fill in any gaps in management and/or experience. For instance, if you lack financial know-how, will you hire a CFO or retain an accountant? If you don’t have sales skills, will you hire an in-house sales manager or use outside sales reps?
