Lots of great presentations this month:
- Jennifer presented 25 years of changes in population genetic patterns of summer flounder at the Ecological Society of America (ESA) meeting in Portland, OR
- Sarah presented on genomic evidence for evolutionary rescue in little brown bats hit by white nose syndrome, also at ESA
- Malin gave three talks: how ecology can help meet the UN sustainable development goals, how to teach about climate change (with Rebecca Jordan), and how climate change impacts in the ocean are different than those on land (all at ESA)
- Becca talked about changing predator-prey interactions as a result of warming in the Northeast US at the American Fisheries Society (AFS) meeting in Tampa, FL
- Jim presented a detailed projection of marine animal distributions in North America over the coming century (AFS)
- Allison presented some of her Ph.D. work on eco-evolutionary dynamics in salmon (AFS)
Postdoc Jim Morley is just back from presenting and participating in the latest Fisheries Forum in Monterey, CA earlier this week. The topic was “Managing Fisheries in a Changing Environment,” and participants included Fisheries Management Council members, staff, NOAA employees, and many state agency employees. Lots of interest in how to adapt to the rapidly changing ocean conditions that we are seeing. Jim talked about how OceanAdapt and the species distribution projections we are developing can help.
Becca traveled to Monterey to present, “The role of warming in piscivore dominance on the Northeast US Shelf” at the 100th anniversary of the Western Society of Naturalists on November 12. Wonderful job, Becca, and happy anniversary, WSN!
Nearly the whole lab and many collaborators will be at Ocean Sciences in New Orleans next week talking about our work!

Becca and Ryan are off to the “New Frontiers in Understanding Predator-Prey Interactions in a Human-Altered World” Gordon Conference in California next week! They’ll be presenting new analyses of climate impacts on predator-prey interaction strengths (Becca) and of climate impacts on marine community structure (Ryan). Should be fun, and should be warm! Meanwhile, the rest of us are dusting off the sleds for what should be the first good snow storm of the year…
Malin is off to the Ecological Society of America meeting in Sacramento, CA next week, in part to run a special symposium on Thursday afternoon, “Climate and Beyond: Cumulative Impacts and Species Range Shifts” with Adam Wolf and Morgan Tingley. They have a great line-up of speakers, so come check it out! Malin will be presenting some of the lab’s new work on the interaction between climate velocity, fishing, and marine protected areas.
Malin will talk about his ongoing research on climate and marine range shifts at the Ecological Society of America: August 6, 1:30pm, COS 5-1.
Malin will be talking about his larval dispersal research at the International Coral Reef Symposium, July 11, 10:15am, Session 14A. This will cover both the use of genetics to estimate larval dispersal kernels, and the interaction between those kernels and habitat patchiness.
