Conference themes

  1. Global and regional trophic pathways and connectivity – trophic responses to variability and change in physical, chemical and biological components of the marine environment
  2. Integrated modelling of systems based on shared socio-economic scenario pathways – projection and exploration of future patterns in marine ecosystems
  3. Adaptive approaches to biodiversity and resource management – strategies for incorporating climate variability and long-term change
  4. Responses of top predator life history dynamics to natural and anthropogenic drivers of spatio-temporal variability and change
  5. Implications of variability and change in the spatial dynamics of top predators for food security, species conservation and ecosystem functioning
  6. Management strategies for whole of systems – moving from biophysical systems to biophysical-socioeconomic systems – what are the key needs for guiding decision making into the future?
