Impacts of Global Change on Biotic Resistance, Resilience, and Ecosystem Services in Caribbean Fish Assemblages, Fisheries, and Aquatic Ecosystems


May 2018 - August 2020


In response to the critical information and research needs, we are conducting research to address objectives on fish ecology, global change, and human economics and cultural dynamics, with an ultimate goal of understanding ecological impacts and processes associated with global change to inform future strategic planning. The objectives will be addressed in intensive research on the island of Puerto Rico, but the findings will be applicable and informative to other tropical Caribbean islands and nations.
