The project also examined the threat posed by oil and gas drilling on these sensitive stretches of seafloor.

FMAP: Future of Marine Animal Populations

Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP). The Future of Marine Animal Populations project analyzed fishing data and scientific surveys to determine changes in diversity and distribution of marine life. The project, headed by Canadian scientists Ian Jonsen, Heike Lotze, and Boris Worm (and previously by Ransom Myers), identified hot spots of diversity drawn from the Census of Marine Life database and changes in water temperature as one of the most integral determinants in the shaping of marine diversity patterns, while confirming that marine conservation helps to correct the rapid population declines associated with over-exploitation of marine stocks.
