SEES Colloquium

Stephen Arnott, PhD, currently a lecturer in the Biology Department at Queens College will present his research on some of the processes that control the degree of population synchrony of 30 fish species along a 200 km stretch of coastline, drawing on an extremely data-rich fishery survey comprising more than 20,000 net deployments over a 25-year period. The species studied showed dramatic variation in their degree of population synchrony. Long-term climatic records indicate that winter conditions play a key role in the control of population synchrony along the coastline.
