Speaker: Alonso Ramirez (www.ramirezlab.net)


Tropical streams are experiencing a diversity of impacts from climate change, land conversion, and urbanization. Our studies in Costa Rica and Puerto Rico are focused on understanding how changes in climate alter the structure and function of stream ecosystems. Streams in Costa Rica experience episodic acidification events associated with changes in precipitation. While mountain streams in Puerto Rico are affected by changes in precipitation and intense hurricanes. The seminar describes the complex effects that these disturbances have in aquatic communities and stream ecosystem function.
