• NEW PAPER: Embracing interactions in ocean acidification research: confronting multiple stressor scenarios and context dependence

    Changes in the Earth’s environment are now sufficiently complex that our ability to forecast the emergent ecological consequences of ocean acidification (OA) is limited. Such projections are challenging because the effects of OA may be enhanced, reduced or even reversed by other environmental stressors or interactions among species. Despite an increasing emphasis on multifactor and …

  • NEW PAPER: Cross-scale approaches to forecasting biogeographic responses to climate change

    This review explores and summarizes the concerns raised by researchers working on problems at diverse scales and offers suggestions of how cross-scale research can best avoid potential pitfalls while preparing society for the ongoing impacts of climate change. Click here to read more.

  • NEW PAPER: Demographic responses to warming

    Climate warming may drive organismal body temperatures beyond physiological thresholds, ultimately leading to detrimental effects on populations and communities. We monitored vital rates of coexisting barnacles over one year in the mid and high zones of the rocky intertidal on Salt Spring Island (British Columbia, Canada); a ‘hot spot’ for intertidal thermal stress.
