Predators and food web dynamics: pattern and process in space and time

The often-stated goal of ecology is to understand the distribution and abundance of organisms. Although this quest must include influences of history, the physical environment, and species interactions, food web dynamics is unarguably of central importance. My seminar will focus on the work my colleagues and I have done on sea otters and kelp forest food webs over the past half century. I will begin with a description of the key species and how they connect with one another via consumer-prey interactions.
