Author Biography

Claudia Castellani, Research Fellow and Plankton Taxonomist, Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS),Martin Edwards, Chief Scientist, Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS)

Claudia Castellani is a marine biologist, holding a BSc (Marine Biology), an MSc (Aquaculture and Fisheries) and a PhD (Zooplankton Ecology) degree from the University of Wales, Bangor. She has been working on main Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) thematic projects on plankton as a research assistant (PRIME, Plankton Reactivity in the Marine Environment) and as a post-doctoral researcher (Marine Productivity). She is currently working as data manager of the Atlantic Meridional Transect (AMT) and Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) within the NERC designated data centre for marine data management (BODC). Her main research interest is the taxonomy, ecology and physiology of zooplanktonic organisms.

Martin Edwards is an internationally recognised marine scientist whose primary research interest is in how climate and environmental change impacts on marine ecosystems. He and his colleagues were the first to demonstrate marine biodiversity distributional and phenological changes and whole ecosystem regime shifts in response to climate change. He has written over 100 publications including peer-reviewed papers, book chapters and policy related reports and assessments. As well as contributing to high level science he has considerable knowledge in transferring science into policy and was instrumental in bringing an applied ecological indicator approach to monitoring the marine environment which has subsequently been widely adopted.
