Non-native species introductions in marine reserves and protected areas

Principal Investigators:

Dianna K. Padilla

This proposal is for sabbatical support as a Center Fellow to conduct two projects. (1.) Aquatic ecosystems have been impacted by a variety of anthropogenic factors, leading to concerns about loss of biodiversity, loss of fisheries stocks, and the introduction and spread of non-native species. In response there has been a dramatic increase in scientific and public attention to the protection of biodiversity and fisheries through marine reserves and protected areas, and the introduction and impacts of non-native species. Although these topics have... more
