Our paper in Science out today, “Preparing ocean governance for species on the move” is available here or in Spanish here.
Jim, Becca, and Malin’s paper, Projecting shifts in thermal habitat for 686 species on the North American continental shelf, was published in PLOS ONE last week (and featured in their Climate Change Channel). The paper details how species’ habitat will shift to cooler waters in the face of climate change.
Press coverage included
Erica Gies’ article in Hakai Magazine on how (and whether) marine conservation can keep up with climate change, with quotes from Will White (Oregon State) and Malin:
Nice interview with Becca on her research showing that warming is transforming predator-prey interactions in the Northeast US:
The Rutgers Climate Institute and the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance have put together two videos that do a nice job illustrating the impacts of climate change on the Jersey shore and fisheries:
Front page of the Science section in the New York Times today: Fish Seek Cooler Waters, Leaving Some Fishermen’s Nets Empty, with quotes from Malin.
As part of her postdoc fellowship, Becca is helping kids get down and dirty with fish, climate change, and science. One of our local papers just ran an article about the field trip last week!
Malin talked about climate change, fish, and fisheries to Congressional staffers, federal employees, and others at a briefing on Capital Hill this past Tuesday (6/28). COMPASS organized the event, with more details here.
The Wall Street Journal just ran a feature story on the National Science Foundation grant we have with Eli Fenichel (Yale) and Simon Levin (Princeton):
