Lynne is a co-author on a paper just published in PNAS this week. It is the culmination of Chapter 2’s work on Naure’s Contributions to People (NCP) for the IPBES Global Biodiversity Assessment.
Congratulations to Marieke, who just had a paper published in the ICES Journal of Marine Science! It is only recently that this renowned international journal has started to open up to the human dimensions in fisheries (and their management), and Marieke is one of the first anthropologists whose work is being recognised in this way.
We are extremely excited to be collaborating with "The Rainbow Exchange" on a theatrical production based on Dr. Louise Gammages PhD research in the southern Cape, specifically the scenario stories she developed together with fishers from Melkhoutfontein. This production, "As die see byt", will be performed in Melkhoutfontein next week. Fingers firmly crossed that Covid-2019 doesn't trip us up.
Lynne is part of a team that looked at seabird-induced natural mortality of forage fish across five ecosystems.
Lynne is one of the co-authors of a paper led by Sandra Diaz that has just been published in Science.
We are part of an exciting International Horizon 2020 project, “Mission Atlantic,” which has just been launched and will map and assess sustainable development of the Atlantic Ocean.
Fruit of several years of work, Lynne and colleagues have updated and re-fitted the EwE model for the southern Benguela (1978-2015) by capturing our improved understanding and including newly available datasets.
Congratulations to Louise who has just got the second paper from her PhD published in Frontiers for Marine Science.
Congratulations to Greg for having got the first paper published from his PhD research. In this article in Maritime Studies, Greg analyses barriers to, and opportunities for alternative seafood marketing of linefish in the southern Cape.
Lynne, Astrid and Louise are very pleased to have contributed to teaching the first summer school of our EU-funded project to a good 25 participants from Africa, South America and Europe.
Congratulations to Clara Steyn and Emily Weigum for having graduated as Masters in Conservation Biology and Applied Ocean Sciences, respectively. It was also the first time for Dr Marieke Norton, Post-Doc in our group, to join faculty on stage!
