[speaker]: The impact of density-dependent changes in individual life histories on marine population dynamics

Andre de Roos profile picture

In this presentation I review how current fisheries models account for ecological processes. Subsequently, I will introduce a class of size-structured population models based on individual energetics that explicitly account for ecological interactions of individual fish. Analysis of models of this kind will be shown to not only increase our understanding of the mechanisms shaping fish community dynamics, but also make counterintuitive predictions about the outcome of fisheries management strategies

Guest Lecture on Sea Star Wasting Disease

Drew is an amazing marine biologist who has worked on a wide range of impacts on marine invertebrate species and communities, most recently sea star wasting disease.  With the spectre of global warming threatening marine communities worldwide, Drew has become especially interested in the role warming plays in facilitating epidemics.  Her work is a tremendous combination of CSI disease ecology all the way through to curation of a stunning collection of art glass profiled in this award-winning film.
