1. Ecological extinction and
evolution in the brave new ocean
2. Jeremy B. C. Jackson
• Paleoecology and macroevolution with particular interest in
the environmental and biological consequences of the
events leading up to the formation of the Isthmus of
Panama over the past 15 million years.
• Historical ecology of human impacts and their implications
for marine conservation biology and management.
• Ecology and evolution of marine invertebrates; human
impacts on tropical marine communities.
3. Coral reefs
• Overfishing, warming and acidification due to
increasing CO2, run-off of nutrients and
toxins, invasive species.
4. Estuaries and coastal seas
• Overfishing; runoff of nutrients and toxins;
warming due to rise of CO2; invasive species;
coastal land use.
5. Continental shelves
• Overfishing; trophic cascades; trawling; runoff
of nutrients and toxins; warming and
acidification due to rise of CO2; introduced
species; escape of aquaculture species
6. Open ocean pelagic
• Overfishing; trophic cascades; warming and
acidification due to rise of CO2
• How important is it?
• How can it be measured for all these different
