"Climate change and aquatic ecosystems on the west coast: Can we forecast responses and prepare for impacts?"
Daniel Schindler, University of Washington

Monday, April 6th, MSI Auditorium

Daniel is a broad community ecologist. However, he perhaps best known for his research looking at how climate change impacts fisheries, with an emphasis on salmon populations in Alaska.
From his website: My current research activities are focused generally on understanding the causes and consequences of dynamics in aquatic ecosystems. Of particular interest are (1) the effects of changing climate on trophic interactions and ecosystem services provided by aquatic ecosystems, (2) fisheries as large-scale drivers of ecosystem organization, (3) importance of anadromous fishes for linking marine ecosystems to coastal aquatic and riparian systems, and (4) the importance of aquatic-terrestrial coupling in the organization of aquatic ecosystems.
