    combined intensive large scale surveys of natural settlement with experiments altering initial settlement densities in order to determine just when and where reef based processes become important in determining population levels We use mass spectrometry to analyze trace metal concentrations in the otoliths of newly arrived fishes This technique can reveal specific environmental signatures which allow us to specify the source of new recruits This work has been carried out in coastal California St Croix US Virgin Islands Hawaii and the Galapagos Islands Conservation Biology Over the past decade I have turned my attention to marine conservation issues There are two main areas of interest Historical ecology of coastal marine populations We have reconstructed the ecological history of coastal marine systems especially coral reefs in many different areas and showed a striking pattern of human influence While the timing of effects depended on when humans appeared on the scene the result was always the same a steady elimination of higher trophic levels and in many cases an eventual collapse of the local ecosystem The science of marine reserves Working with groups at UCSB and NCEAS we have attempted to document the effects of marine reserves and to use these data to provide criteria for future reserve establishment Reserves show striking increases in biomass abundance and diversity Most of the response is in exploited species and about 20 of the species decline after establishment Exploited species in areas outside of reserves tend to increase in abundance and biomass after reserve establishment indicating that the export function of reserves overcomes the potentially negative effects of fishery displacement We have outlined the primary considerations for managers when contemplating marine reserve establishment and these criteria are being incorporated into marine reserve design I will retire in August 2012 but plan to continue an active research career However I will only be accepting graduate students jointly with my colleagues in the EEMB department so it is best to apply to them directly Selected Publications 2012 Warner R R Review of Reproduction and Sexuality in Marine Fishes Patterns and Processes Kathleen S Cole Editor Quarterly Review of Biology 87 157 2012 Madin E M P S D Gaines J S Madin A K Link P J Lubchenco R L Selden and R R Warner Do behavioral foraging responses of prey to predators function similarly in restored and pristine foodwebs PLoS ONE 7 3 e32390 doi 10 1371 journal pone 0032390 2012 Manríquez P H S P Galaz T Opitz S Hamilton G Paradis R R Warner J C Castilla F A Labra and N A Lagos Geographic variation in trace elemental signatures in the statoliths of near hatch larvae and recruits of Concholepas concholepas Loco Marine Ecology Progress Series 448 105 118 doi 10 3354 meps09514 2012 Pizzolon M L Locatello R R Warner N Chimento L Finos and M B Rasotto Linking male qualities to multiple display traits an example in a fish with exclusive male care Behav Ecol and Sociobiol 66 497 504 doi
