A Institute of the Environment Oppenheim Series Lecture by Dr. Jeremy Jackson, UCLA
Dr. Jackson, a famed marine ecologist from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, describes how marine ecosystems are being transformed by human impacts, including habitat destruction, overfishing, introduced species, warming, acidification, toxins, and massive runoff of nutrients. This transformation is laying the groundwork for a great mass extinction in the oceans. Jackson examines crucial questions about this Brave New Ocean, including, how will these ecosystems evolve? What organisms will benefit and which will disappear? How can these trends be halted and reversed?
