We analyze the interactions among marine ecology and biodiversity, fisheries, socioeconomics, climate change, and more.
Ecosystem Dynamics and Theory
The practical and theoretical study of how communities of living organisms change over time.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
Research in our lab traces the flow of organic matter through marine ecosystems, focusing on the trophic connectivity of species and assemblages in deep pelagic waters.
Studies coral reef ecosystems to answer fundamental questions of population biology, trophic dynamics, and spatial ecology.
A working group of scientists united by an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to studying coral reefs across gradients of anthropogenic stress.
Dedicated to generating and disseminating scientific information that has a direct, positive impact on conservation and management issues and policies in the region.
We work to better understand parasites and parasitism, and to use them to enhance general ecological, evolutionary, and behavioral science.
Much of the work from this lab involves inductive theoretical approaches to understanding nature from observational data.
Study led by Scripps scientists looks at the impact of brain-infecting...
