This new video podcast from Albert Pessarrodona focuses on marine ecology and shows that climate warming is strongly affecting underwater forests. But will ecosystem functions be maintained? In this video, Albert answer this question and highlights the main results of his recently published Journal of Ecology paper titled “Can ecosystem functioning be maintained despite climate‐driven shifts in species composition? Insights from novel marine forests“.
Albert’s video can also be found on the Journal of Ecology YouTube channel (English subtitles available).
Albert Pessarrodona is a marine ecologist with an interest in kelps and habitat-forming seaweeds. His recent work focuses on exploring novel approaches to increase the resilience of underwater forests to climate change as well as improving our understanding of the mechanisms hindering their recovery once they have collapsed. Albert is currently a doctoral student at the University of Western Australia.
