Nearshore/Offshore Hydrodynamics and Population Ecology
This website describes a multi-year project analyzing the processes that govern the population dynamics of nearshore benthic species, such as larval production and transport, larval settlement, disturbance, predation, and competition for space. This project involves the combination of conventional observational techniques with mathematical processes to study the complexity inherent in marine ecosystems. This web page provides a report on previous findings in this study, a program for future efforts on this projects, a discussion page for topics related to this research, and contact information for several professionals working in this branch of science. This resource is part of the Biocomplexity collection.
