Hi Everyone,

Please join us for our last Colloquium speaker of Spring 2021 tomorrow,  Friday April 16.

PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER TIME AT 10:30 am, to accommodate the time difference with the UK.

Dr. Alessandro Tagliabue
University of Liverpool


Net primary production underpins many ocean ecosystems services, but is under threat from climate change. Projections of potential changes in net primary production are poorly constrained, which raises challenges for predicting and managing future change. The micronutrient iron is now acknowledged as a key driver of net primary production, carbon cycling and ecosystem dynamics across large areas of the ocean, but there are also large uncertainties around how the ocean iron cycle functions. In this talk I will explore how our understanding of biological iron cycling in the context of a changing climate affects our understanding of the response of upper trophic levels to climate change. I will discuss the current state of the art, in the context of the latest IPCC reports, and speculate on where the field is moving in the future.


Prof Tagliabue is an ocean biogeochemist, interested in how the cycling of resources in the sea affects biological activity and vice-versa. He is particularly interested in trace micronutrients and how they interact together to shape primary production, ecosystem structure and the global carbon cycle. Alessandro obtained his PhD from Stanford University and conducted postdoctoral research in Paris and Cape Town before joining the faculty at the University of Liverpool. He is involved in the international GEOTRACES programme, was a lead author on the IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate and is a member of the governing council of the UK Challenger Society for Marine Science and the Royal Society Global Environment Research Committee.

William Landing is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
