Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science M.S. Program Seminar

October 28, 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Hilo Campus, Wentworth 9

TITLE: Toward metapopulation ecology of coral-reef fishes

SPEAKER: Dr. Mark Hixon
Department of Biology
UH Manoa
WHEN: MONDAY, 28 October, at 4 pm
WHERE: Wentworth 9

All are welcome!

A marine metapopulation is a collection of spatially isolated local populations of adult organisms connected by larval dispersal. Therefore, a metapopulation is the fundamental unit for managing marine fisheries (traditionally called a "stock") and conserving threatened marine species. Although marine ecologists have the ability to determine important interactions that drive and regulate the dynamics of local populations, integrating this knowledge with patterns of larval connectivity (spawning within one local population seeding another with larvae) and self-recruitment (self-seeding) at the scale of the entire metapopulation has only recently become possible due to breakthroughs in population genetics. The integration of ecological and genetic methods promise to provide holistic understanding of what determines patterns of abundance in marine species.
