2017-2018 Center Report

"We must now begin to steward ecosystems as best we know how while continuing to strive for better understanding. This is a pragmatic approach I once might have rejected, but given current rates of global change we don’t have the luxury of waiting to act. Decision makers, practitioners, and scientists now need to work together to identify the tradeoffs among ecosystem management regimes and minimize the possibility of bad outcomes. These articles all demonstrate that while there are still many unknowns, through experiments, modeling, and collaborating across disciplines, we are making progress."
--Anne Giblin, Ecosystems Center Director
