Developing a broader perspective for marine communities in an area of climate change: insights from the Galapagos IslandsJon D. Witman, Professor, Biology Department, Brown University

Research Interest:
My research is directed toward understanding the dynamics of populations and communities living in marine hard substrate habitats. Our lab is conducting research focused around three themes: 1) physical forcing of marine benthic ecosystems, 2) studies on the origin vs. the maintenance of pattern, and 3) marine biodiversity. How community structuring processes vary with scale is a consideration that pervades all aspects of our research.
