Symposium on species interactions and global change

Competition for space in the intertidal. 

Competition for space in the intertidal. 

In 2017 I chaired a symposium on species interactions and global change with Jonathon Stillman and Brian Tsukimura at the meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) in New Orleans, LA. The symposium was titled "Indirect Effects of Global Change: from Physiological and Behavioral Mechanisms to Ecological Consequences"

The list of speakers, with links to the papers that resulted from their presentations, are below. 




Maud Ferrari – University of Saskatchewan
Predation in high CO2 waters: prey fish from high-risk environments are less susceptible to ocean acidification.

John P. Swaddle – The College of William and Mary
Using a sound field to reduce the risks of bird strike: an experimental approach.

Danielle L. Dixson – University of Delaware
Impacts of ocean acidification on sensory function in marine organisms.

Alex R. Gunderson - SFSU/UC Berkeley
Species as stressors: heterospecific interactions and the cellular stress response under global change.

John Delong - University of Nebraska
Scaling from metabolism to population growth rate to understand how acclimation temperature alters thermal performance.

Sarah E. Diamond – Case Western Reserve University
Heat tolerance predicts the importance of species interaction effects as the climate changes.

Samuel Fey - Yale University/Reed College
Species interactions in variable environments: How temporal patterns of temperature can influence competitive interactions (no manuscript)

Brandon Barton – Mississippi State University
Warming alters prey density and biological control in conventional and organic agricultural systems.

Mark Urban – University of Connecticut
Searching for the biotic multipliers of climate change.

Sarah Gilman – Claremont College
Predicting the indirect effects of predator-prey interactions

Nina Lany – Michigan State University
Incorporating context dependency of species interactions in species distribution models.
