Marine perspectives on protected area planning for climate change

Dr Lee Hannah

The marine realm poses unique challenges in protected area adaptation to climate change.  Marine species move more and faster in response to climate change and the biogeography of marine species is still far behind that of terrestrial species.  But the marine realm provides unique opportunities as well, such as mobile Marine Protected Areas (mMPA).

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
