Emily Seubert’s presentation at the American Elasmobranch Society meeting focused on her hypothesis that the species and functional diversity of apex and mesopredators can impact an ecosystem’s resiliency following a natural disaster.

Emily has also been collecting tissue samples from her catch for stable isotope analysis, which will give insight to the short term and long term food web dynamics of these predators.

Stay tuned for more ACER research updates in the coming months as we head to Biloxi in November for the 2016 Bays and Bayous Symposium!
