Dr. Leslie Cornick, SCB Marine Section board member, has been studying marine mammals in Alaska for the past 15 years. She studies the physiological limits to behavioral plasticity in a changing ocean environment. As marine mammals in Alaska and the Arctic respond to climate change by changing their foraging patterns and migration pathways, subsistence users face changes in access to their most important source of fat and protein, as well the potential loss of deep cultural traditions. In her presentation at ICCB ECCB 2015, Cornick will examine the issue of community resilience and adaption as communities adapt to changes in access to these resources. ICCB 2015, the 27th International Congress for Conservation Biology, will be held in conjunction with the 4th European Congress for Conservation Biology on August 2-6, 2015 in Montpellier, France.
