Using both broad-scale environmental sampling and experimental manipulations of small scale model systems, I focus in particular on the following three questions: (1) What are the nature and causes of biodiversity patterns in the ocean? (2) How do these biodiversity patterns influence ecosystem function? (3) How do ecological interactions (i.e., trophic and symbiotic) promote the stability and resilience of marine communities?
