This 3-day, hands-on workshop will help resource managers and scientists understand and apply a suite of cutting-edge scientific tools and methods to support effective management decisions related to ecological regime shifts, fisheries collapse and other types of dramatic ecological change in the ocean. It will be taught by an interdisciplinary team of scientists and law/policy experts with experience developing and applying these methods.
This unique opportunity is organized by the Ocean Tipping Points project, an interdisciplinary research collaboration among academic, non-governmental and governmental partners. Their recently released web portal presents the types of topics, methods, and studies they will draw on in this course.
