We analyze the interactions among marine ecology and biodiversity, fisheries, socioeconomics, climate change, and more.
Understanding the ecology, biogeochemical environment, marine conditions, and societal impacts of nearshore environments ranging from wetlands and estuaries to the edge of the continental shelf.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
We take advantage of molecular genetic approaches to examine diverse questions in ecology and evolution.
Studies the marine environment off the coast of California, the management of its living resources, and monitors the indicators of El Nino and climate change.
Providing services on coastal and marine science and policy issues.
Investigating nonlinear transitions in the California Current coastal pelagic ecosystem.
Studies coral reef ecosystems to answer fundamental questions of population biology, trophic dynamics, and spatial ecology.
Dedicated to generating and disseminating scientific information that has a direct, positive impact on conservation and management issues and policies in the region.
