Heather and Leila speak at AAAS

Leila Sievanen, Leslie Lab postdoc, and Heather Leslie will be speaking at the annual meeting of AAAS in Washington, DC later this week on the need to better understand the ocean’s varied habitats and how they change over time, as well as the need to involve all constituencies in conservation and management discussions. Heather’s talk builds on work done by her and Joey Bernhardt on the ecological mechanisms underlying resilience in marine systems as well as earlier resilience studies by Leslie and others. Leila’s talk is part of the larger Brown-Duke collaboration on ecosystem based management in practice.
