A Journey to the Remote Pacific: Diverse and Threatened Coral Reef Ecosystems. This lecture will explain the challenges facing reef sharks and the coral reefs that they call home. Coral reefs are the ocean’s most diverse ecosystems but also the most threatened. Research discussed will focus on understanding how anthropogenic disturbances, from exploitation to climate change, affect marine populations, and what the broader consequences of these changes are for marine community structure and function.

Dr. Julia Baum is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at UVic. She received her BSc from McGill University, and her MSc and PhD from Dalhousie University. Dr. Baum has conducted field research on declining Atlantic Ocean shark populations in eleven countries, including the Republic of Kiribati, the location of her current coral reef field program.
