  • The Life Force of African Rivers | Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology | UC Santa Barbara
    daybreak having eaten their fill they return to their daytime resting area to rest digest and eventually eliminate This natural process results in millions of tons of hippo dung entering Africa s aquatic ecosystems every year However as distasteful as that might seem the hippos deposits actually serve an important ecological function A new study by UC Santa Barbara s Douglas McCauley and colleagues reveals that the organic matter produced

  • Wildlife loss in the global ocean - a story of cautionary hope | Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology | UC Santa Barbara
    of wildlife in the oceans Drs Douglas McCauley and Robert Warner of UCSB s Department of Ecology Evolution and Marine Biology EEMB compare patterns of terrestrial and marine animal loss in order to place human effects on marine fauna in perspective and to elucidate ways to navigate towards recovery They find marine fauna to be in much better condition than terrestrial fauna presenting a valuable opportunity for us to chart
