Assistant Professor of Organismal and Environmental Biology Dr. Heather Harwell co-authored Red List of Marine Bony Fishes of the Eastern Central Atlantic. This large, collaborative research effort is the first comprehensive documentation of the presence, status and level of extinction risk for more than 1,800 marine species in the Eastern Central Atlantic Ocean.

"The results of this five-year study will help transform the current state of knowledge regarding coastal and pelagic fish populations in West Africa, and will increase capacity for regional stakeholders to identify and enact marine conservation and research priorities," Harwell says.
