Telecouplings are socioeconomic and environmental interactions over distances. They are now increasingly common and more influential across the globe. They occur during trade, water transfer, payments for ecosystem services, foreign investment, migration, and tourism. They also emerge when information flows, species invade, and diseases spread. Even a remote nature reserve has numerous telecouplings with the rest of the world. Telecouplings have profound positive and negative effects on distant systems.

Nigel Lester is a research scientist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. His research looks at regional (landscape-scale) fisheries assessment as well as examines the intersection of life history strategies and population dynamics in freshwater fishes. In these respective fields he has pioneered innovative approaches that inform both the science and management of inland fisheries.

After Dr. Lester’s seminar, there is a special WART/GSO fundraising event at the Pizza House from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The Environmental Science and Policy Program has launched a symposium series to explore the challenges and opportunities we face in enhancing human well-being while protecting the environment. This symposium will bring distinguished thinkers from around the world to explore what we know, what we need to know and what we must do as we move into a century of unprecedented environmental change, technological advancement and scale of human activity.

As global attention has become increasingly focused on the depletion of many marine fisheries, freshwater fisheries around the world are facing their own challenges. Inland fisheries are critical food resource, especially in much of the developing world, yet agricultural, water management, and investment policies are often at odds with maintaining their long-term sustainability. A lack of reliable data and a local, rather than global approach, to inland fisheries issues has hampered international monitoring and conservation programs.
