Session 9. Impact of climate change on ecosystem carrying capacity via food-web spatial relocations

Brian R. MacKenzie, Mark Payne (Technical University of Denmark, Denmark)

Plenary Speaker:
Coleen Moloney (University of Cape Town, South Africa)

Invited Speaker:
Jason Link (NOAA Fisheries, USA)

Individual species are expected to respond to climate change effects on oceans in regionally-distinct ways according to the limits of their life history traits. One response will be changes in spatial extent with impacts on ecosystem structure through emigrations and immigrations that open or fill new niches. Regional food web linkages are expected to relocate, and trophic interactions become modified by shifts in space and time of the prey, predator, or competitor. This session offers the opportunity to present innovative food-web linkages modeling tools that include expected species spatial re-locations. Contributions can describe past and forecast future changes in global or regional trophic interactions (e.g., predator-prey interactions, competition) due to climate impacts on species biology (e.g., changes in abundances, distributions, vulnerabilities to new abiotic conditions including pH and hypoxia). Papers predicting where interactions might occur under future climate scenarios are encouraged.
