Keynote speaker: Dr. Janet Nye, UNC Chapel Hill “Moving beyond single species assessments: responses of marine ecosystems and food webs to warming”

Dr. Janet Nye is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Marine Sciences. Her research focuses on the effects of climate variability and climate change on fish, fisheries, and marine ecosystems. Specifically, she studies how climate and fishing interact to cause shifts in spatial distribution and abundance of fish and invertebrates in the Northwest Atlantic, including local fisheries in Long Island Sound and Great South Bay. Dr. Nye’s research is used to inform how climate change may affect species that have been petitioned under the Endangered Species Act.
