James Estes, PhD Dr. James Estes is an international expert on sea otters and a specialist in the critical role of apex (top level) predators in the marine environment. He has been a research biologist at the Western Ecological Research Center of the U.S. Geological Survey for more than 20 years. Estes also holds academic posts as research associate and adjunct professor with the Center for Marine Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
His interest in predation as an ecosystem-level process began in the early 1970s, after he began working with sea otters. Using the otters' fragmented distribution across the Aleutian archipelago (which resulted from a history of near-extinction and recovery), he and a colleague discovered the species' keystone role in kelp forests by comparing islands where it was abundant or rare. This work provided a spectacular example of how apex predators influence ecosystem functions. Estes continued to explore the dimensions of sea otter-kelp forest interactions over the next 30 years, including the unanticipated collapse of sea otters and kelp forests in western Alaska.
He has now published nearly 70 scientific articles and reports on wildlife ecology, predation and conservation, and was lead editor of the 2007 book, "Whales, Whaling, and Ocean Ecosystems. Estes is a recipient of the prestigious Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation (1999).

Rescue missions can convey a false impression that damage from oil spills can be fixed, said Jim Estes, an ecologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, who worked on the federal effort to save animals after the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989. "Oil may be doing a species considerable harm, but rehabilitation won't change that," Estes said.
