Description

Ecosystems are changing in unprecedented ways, yet the drivers and effects of such change remain poorly understood. Marine transition zones where tropical and temperate ecosystems overlap, provide a unique ‘window’ into how global change may influence complex biological systems. I will develop the first-ever ecological model of marine transition zones to understand (1) how complex and vulnerable marine ecosystems function, (2) how they will respond to climate change, and to (3) provide a novel tool that informs climate change adaptation strategies. This will advance our understanding of marine ecosystems and how to manage them so they remain healthy and productive.
