Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.

    Cool article on an important issue. A good diversity of viewpoints from the experts. I would love to see some data on this stuff though. For example, are we sure that it’s DIY fishers are eroding the quality of easily accessible flats? And how have other high-end fisheries like Western US trout, Atlantic Salmon, or Steelhead dealt with these conflicts?
