Conservation planning for ecosystem functioning: Testing predictions of ecological effectiveness for marine predators (EBM)

Principal Investigators:

Daniel F. Doak, James A. Estes, Terrie Williams, and J. Timothy Wootton

At a major symposium on marine ecosystem-based management at the 2005 AAAS meetings, one of the three principal themes deemed critical for future progress was interaction web dynamics¿the way in which species interact with one another and their physical environment. In particular, the scientific basis for marine ecosystem-based management must better incorporate understanding of the influences of multiple predator species on interaction web dynamics. These interactions are increasingly recognized as critical to the maintenance and restoration of... more
