Regime shifts are periods of rapid change punctuating periods of low variability, and when they occur they can massively disrupt the services an ecosystem provides to people. We show how to detect regime shifts using rates of change of whole communities, so that these shifts can be detected earlier and planned for.

New paper published in Fisheries Oceanography

In this paper, we show that slower juvenile growth due to cold waters in the years following the cod collapse in Newfoundland may have contributed to the lack of cod recovery.

Starting up at Concordia University
