Video: Tipping points in NZ coastal ecosystems

Conrad Pilditch gave this presentation at the NZ Coastal Society conference. The research is part of the 'Tipping points in ecosystem structure, function and services' project.


Tipping points are a rapid transformation that happens when an ecosystem loses its capacity to cope with change. To understand how they manifest in New Zealand waters, we are doing the first national marine experiment in estuaries, harbours and rocky reefs, to identify tipping points, risks and how systems respond to change.
