Dynamics in the sea: Marine Reserves

Prof. Hastings will discuss a variety of issues that arise in the design and assessment of marine protected areas. He will begin with basic issues, then emphasize the importance of taking into account multiple species and heterogeneity. Finally, especially in the context of assessment, he will emphasize the absolute necessity of taking a dynamic view rather than looking at static or long term behavior. He will emphasize examples from the Caribbean as well as California.
