We analyze the interactions among marine ecology and biodiversity, fisheries, socioeconomics, climate change, and more.
Population and Community Ecology
Understanding the interactions among groups of organisms and their environment at the community and population scale.
Centers, Labs, and Programs
We use sequence-based approaches, flow cytometry, modeling, and other techniques to explore the structure and function of microbial communities.
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.
Investigating nonlinear transitions in the California Current coastal pelagic ecosystem.
Promotes interdisciplinary research and educational approaches to maintain the integrity of ocean ecosystems and manage their use in the face of rapid and inevitable global change.
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.
