Climate-Driven changes in Rocky Shore Communities

Friday 18 January, 7.00pm-8.00pm – Newcastle University – Ridley Building 2, room RIDB2.1.65

With Heather Sugden

Climate change is causing rapid responses in marine communities, with species in many taxonomic groups showing fast shifts in biogeographic range. Heather will describe a multidisciplinary approach to identify patterns within long-term datasets and the processes driving these patterns. She will then talk about shifts across the boundaries and what is happening in the northeast on a local level together with the results from current work.

Heather is a Teaching Fellow at Newcastle University whose research includes studies on factors affecting marine communities and Citizen Science research projects such as Capturing Our Coast and The Big Sea Survey
