William Cheung and Gabriel Reygondeau publish chapter on The Southern Ocean in the Ocean and Climate Platform’s Scientific Notes
William Cheung, Director of the Nereus Program (Science), and Gabriel Reygondeau, Nereus Fellow (UBC), are co-authors of a chapter on The Southern Ocean, published in the Ocean and Climate Platform’s Scientific Notes. The Ocean and Climate Platform is an alliance of NGOs and research institutes, with support from UNESCO.
Canada has gone from being a world leader in ocean management to a country failing its oceans due to a lack of federal leadership in implementing ocean policy, the cutting of funding and resources to government ocean science, and the silencing of government scientists.
These findings are part of a new study in Marine Policy, co-authored by Nereus Program researchers, which states that “federal ocean policy and management have diverged substantially from marine science in the past decade”.
“Global overview of the applications of the Ecopath with Ecosim modeling approach using the EcoBase models repository” has been published in Ecological Modelling by Mathieu Colléter, Nereus Fellow (UBC), Audrey Valls, 2011-2014 Junior Research Fellow (UBC), and Daniel Pauly, Chair of the Nereus Steering Committee and a member of the Advisory Board.
Daniel Dunn, Nereus Senior Research Fellow in the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab at Duke University, has published a paper on how environmental conditions and oceanic fronts promote seamount, underwater mountain, productivity. “A perspective on the importance of oceanic fronts in promoting aggregation of visitors to seamounts” (PDF) was published in Fish and Fisheries.
Audrey Valls published on Keystone species: Toward an operational concept for marine biodiversity conservation
Audrey Valls, 2011-2014 Junior Research Fellow (UBC), has published a paper titled “Keystone species: toward an operational concept for marine biodiversity conservation” (PDF) in Ecological Monographs.
William Cheung, Director of the Nereus Program (Science) and Principle Investigator, has published two papers on Chinese marine areas, including on the impacts of fishing on the mean trophic level and comparing trophic structure.
“Impacts of fishing on the marine mean trophic level in Chinese marine area” has been published in Acta Ecologica Sinica.
Daniel Pauly, Chair of the Nereus Steering Committee and a member of the Advisory Board, and William Cheung, Director of the Nereus Program (Science) and Principle Investigator, have co-authored a paper titled “Polar lessons learned: long-term management based on shared threats in Arctic and Antarctic environments” in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment. This paper looks at the threats to the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions, including climate change, pollution, fisheries overexploitation, and invasive species. The paper advises that “until the greenhouse-gas emissions that drive climate change can be reduced, it is crucial to address other threats (including pollution, fisheries overharvesting, and invasive species) that interact with climate change.”
