    About This Project

    Coastal ecosystems are sensitive to human-induced pressure from fisheries and pollution that lead to localized extinctions of specific organisms. These extinctions disproportionately affect larger, predatory animals (megafauna), with cascading effects upon ecosystem-scale carbon cycling pathways. This project will test how selective removal of larger predatory organisms alters ecosystem structure and function, changing energy flow and carbon cycling pathways in coastal sediments.
