The seventh session of the bilateral workshop showed a broad variety of oral presentations and posters on approaches to integration for evaluating ecosystem management strategies and on concrete tools for or contributions to these approaches. Presentations from the programs WAVES and MADAM dominated the session. The explicit attention for integration appears to have an ever more central role in interdisciplinary research, outgrowing the traditional `trivial serial linkage of disciplinary contributions. Within the programs SHIFT, MADAM and WAVES, integration plays different roles, varying from being a method to connect the multiple aspects of ecosystem functioning, thus improving ecosystem understanding, to being the central research goal.
