Research Unit Seminars

We regularly meet to provide our Research Units an opportunity to share an overview of their research, student investigations, and any special activities they are undertaking.

CORU: This group studies the effects of global climate and ocean changes on marine ecosystems, biodiversity and fisheries. Its researchers assess the biophysical and socio-economic vulnerabilities and impacts of marine climate change, and identify mitigation and adaptation options.

The Climate and Coastal Ecosystems Laboratory studies why the climate matters to society as well as ecosystems like coral reefs. The work provides insight into the causes and effects of climate change, public attitudes, policy options at home and abroad, and what can be done to adapt.

Marine Zooplankton and Micronekton Laboratory, led by Prof. Evgeny A. Pakhomov focuses on understanding marine ecosystems’ structure and function, physical-biological interactions, biogeochemical coupling and ecosystem responses to climate change. The research spans species ecology from plankton to fish covering water column processes in the world ocean from the North Pacific to the Southern Ocean.

Pelagic Ecosystems Lab investigates the plankton's response to our changing oceans and its ecosystem level impacts from the coast to the open ocean.

Rosenfeld Lab investigates the conservation and management of freshwater aquatic resources in British Columbia; focus on freshwater ecology with a specialization on stream ecosystems.

The Sea Around Us group catalogues and presents fisheries and related data at spatial scales that are relevant to ecology and policy. The Sea Around Us website catalogues fisheries and ecosystem data according to Exclusive Economic Zones, Large Marine Ecosystems, High Seas areas, and other ecological meaningful special areas.

The Statistical Ecology Research Group links ecology and statistics to help understand animal behaviour, population dynamics, movement, and space use. It generally focuses on aquatic ecosystems or animals living at the poles.

This group is led by Professor Emeritus, Dr. Carl J. Walters.
