The advances made by the GLOBEC programme are summarized in terms of what was learned from GLOBEC science, the science themes now emerging from GLOBEC results, and the implications of these for future interdisciplinary marine ecosystem research programmes. The fundamental changes in understanding of scales of interactions of marine ecosystems, alternative views of food webs, and the appreciation of the role of humans in marine ecosystem processes that have come from GLOBEC science are highlighted. Emerging themes related to scales and thresholds, human interactions with ecosystem change, and advances in modelling marine ecosystems provide the basis for future research that builds on the GLOBEC programme. The lessons learned from the GLOBEC programme highlight, and provide direction for, the many challenges that will have to be overcome to develop the integrative research programmes between the natural, social, and economic sciences that are needed to understand and sustain the world's ocean in an era of increasing change and uncertainty.

Keywords:   marine ecosystems, GLOBEC synthesis, marine food webs, GLOBEC legacy, climate—marine ecosystem interactions
