Strengthening collaborations in marine ecology between Brazil and the UK: visiting researcher, Dr. Stuart Jenkins

Abstract

The proposed activities of Dr. Stuart Jenkins during the research visit will act to strengthen and elaborate ongoing collaborations between research groups in Brazil and in the UK. In this proposal there are four different academic activities, corresponding to the production of four clear outputs, the implementation of two manipulative field experiments within ongoing funded projects and the production of two additional manuscripts. In addition we anticipate that teaching activities, seminars and workshops involving contact with a number of Institutions in Sao Paulo state will form a key part of the research visit. The collaboration of Dr. Jenkins with ongoing funded projects will bring important benefits to my research group, my collaborators and research outputs of these projects. The main focus will be on activities related to the integration of the benthic and pelagic systems at Araçá Bay in order to develop a holistic view of ecosystem functioning. Within this large interdisciplinary project planned research of Dr. Jenkins will evaluate how changes in the pelagic system can regulate the rate of recruitment, growth and mortality of benthic invertebrates on rocky shores. Output from this project will inform the work of my research group over large spatial scales, (funded by FAPESP and CNPq) and lead to further planned research proposals in Brazil and UK. Additional collaborative research activities will be made on projects related to the impact of non-native species on ecosystem functioning and on macro-ecological processes regulating benthic communities.
