Understanding how living organisms respond and adapt to environmental changes remains a major and urgent scientific challenge. CEES combines a broad spectrum of disciplines – such as population biology, statistical and mathematical modelling, and genomics – to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology.

    Over the last century, overfishing has led to the collapse of many fish stocks. Some of them, following successful management actions, have rebuilt their number but did they remain the same? In a recent study published in Ecology and Evolution we explored the effect of collapse on the stocks ecology by testing for differences before and after.
