Impacts of Multiple Stressors in Coastal Ecosystems on Organism Health II Posters

Session ID#: 28613

Session Description:
Organisms inhabiting coastal ecosystems are subject to a myriad of natural and anthropogenic stressors, such as variations in temperature and salinity, chemicals present in run-off or effluents, and the increased presence of invasive species. These coupled stressors can be additive, synergistic, or antagonistic at the individual and population levels. Organism-level responses are thus difficult to predict using traditional experimental approaches designed to evaluate single stressor variables. For example, major abiotic stressors such as hypoxia can enhance the effects of pollutant exposure. Understanding the interactions that occur between abiotic parameters, anthropogenic stressors, and responses at different levels of biological organization is critical for physiologists, ecologists, and toxicologists to project species resilience in the Anthropocene. Presentations addressing these challenges in marine and estuarine organisms across taxa are welcome. Studies can address responses at the molecular, organismal, or population scale in vertebrates or invertebrates. Examples of endpoints range from changes in growth or reproductive health to behavior and biochemical responses such as protein levels or gene expression. Pollutants or other environmental stressors should be considered in the context of conditions induced by global climate change, such as CO2-acidification, hypoxia, increased temperature, varied salinity, or species interactions due to range shifts or invasive species.
