Biogeography and Conservation of Marine Mammals

What are the most effective ways to determine which areas of the world are the most valuable in terms of marine mammal conservation?

This is the main question I seek to answer in my dissertation research work. We are comparing a series of methods used to date to select important conservation areas for marine mammals around the world, as well as using new approaches that have never been tested before in marine systems at the global scale.

To learn more about part of what we are doing, check out our published abstract for this year’s Ecological Society of America’s (ESA) annual conference here.

I will update this page as the work unfolds. Check back again often to read more about this project.
