*078 - Ecology of Infectious Marine Disease in a Changing
* Marine infectious diseases are increasingly impacting critical coastal
ecosystems from tropical coral reefs to temperate seagrasses in our
changing ocean. Climate- related outbreaks of disease have the capacity to
re- shape entire ecosystems, cause diseases in humans, and affect fisheries
and aquaculture. Climate change is affecting the physiology, distribution,
and interactions of marine organisms, including aquatic pathogens, and
consequently the populations of organisms they influence. This session will
bring together researchers with an ecological perspective that focuses on
microbial interactions and the conditions that facilitate the transition
from associate to opportunistic pathogen. This session will integrate the
new tools needed to study changing microbial interactions in the
global ocean including diagnostics, genomics, modeling, forecasting, and
satellite remote sensing. A critical new focus includes incorporating the
human user dimension, including social science research focused on risk
communication, management, and economics of Climate-Disease synergisms. We
encourage contributions that address effects of climate variables such as
temperature, acidification, and warming- related eutrophication on changing
risk of disease in marine organisms or humans. Category
