“Ecology and conservation in a variable and uncertain world” by Easton R. White, Research Associate, Department of Biology, University of Vermont.

Environmental variability can be on daily or decadal time scales. Of course, these various forms of environmental variability shape ecosystems, and, consequently, the human communities that depend on them. Understanding this variability and managing in the face of uncertainty is critical for ecosystem management. In this talk, these ideas will be addressed in the context of species monitoring and the management of ecosystems, including coral reef fisheries.”

Dr. Easton White is a quantitative ecologist working to solve problems in ecology, conservation, sustainability, and ecosystem management. His current projects include designing protected area networks, optimizing species monitoring, and modeling coupled socio-ecological systems. He is a Research Associate in the Biology Department at the University of Vermont. You can read more about his work on his website:
