Sea Change: Forecasting the Emergent Ecological Effects of Global Change in our Coastal Ecosystems 

Turing Auditorium 

255 Panama Street, Stanford University


Professor Kroeker's research examines the ecological effects of climate change and ocean acidification on marine communities and ecosystems. Her talk will focus on the importance of incorporating interactions, between multiple stressors and species, in the study of the emergent effects of global change, with examples from seagrass and other key forest ecosystems. In addition, she will address ongoing research regarding how actions at a local-scale can offset the effects of global change on marine ecosystems to protect both nature and people. Dr. Kroeker is a Packard Fellow in Science and Engineering and a Sloan Fellow in Ocean Sciences.
