Malin Pinsky, Rutgers, Abbot Lecture, Life in a giant water bath: Consequences for ecological dynamics in the ocean

February 22, 2019 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Hopkins Marine Station, Boat Works Lecture Hall

free and open to public

We advance global understanding of marine populations and communities in a rapidly changing environment to inform stewardship and train the next generation of scientific leaders.

Our research focuses on global change ecology and evolution in the ocean. The ocean contains 90% of the habitable space on Earth, and yet we understand little about how human activities are (or are not) transforming the ocean, the key processes involved, and the actions that could make a difference. The ocean is a fundamentally different environment from that on land, and a central interest in our research is the extent to which global change patterns and processes are similar across land and sea. Integrating tools from statistical ecology, population genomics, field observations, and mathematical modeling, our research aims to understand the consequences of these differences for global change in the ocean and the implications for developing more sustainable ocean uses.
