ESSAS Special Session at the PICES Annual Science Meeting
Location: San Diego, CA, USA
Resilience, Transitions and Adaptation in Marine Ecosystems under a Changing Climate.
This session will explore the concept of resilience (sometimes also called stability) in both physical ocean systems and in the associated ecological systems from plankton through fish. Our hope is that this session will contribute to the development of more plausible scenarios for future physical and biological changes in marine ecosystems, which are needed to facilitate climate change adaptation in socio-economic systems that depend on marine resources.
