- Institute for Applied Ecology
- Public lectures/seminars

Professor Johnston will discuss emerging evidence from our changing coasts. From the tropics to the poles, nearshore coastal systems are warming and becoming nutrient rich. Professor Johnston will discuss recent studies that may help us see into the future for our coastal region. Hear how experimental ecology combines with the observational to inform our predictions of the constantly re-created fringe of the sea.
