Fernando P. Lima is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Biological Sciences of the University of South Carolina, USA and at CIBIO, Centro de Investigação em Biodiversidade e Recursos Genéticos, Portugal. His professional interests focus on marine biodiversity and biogeography, with particular emphasis on the processes governing species distributions. Most of his recent work is linked with alterations in species distributions and their relation with climate change.

David S. Wethey is an Associated Professor at the Department of Biological Sciences of the University of South Carolina, USA. David Wethey's research interests include biogeography, population dynamics, predator-prey and competitive interactions, conservation genetics, and the mechanisms by which organisms escape the physics of their habitats. He uses a combination of field and laboratory experiments and modeling to examine these processes. His work on biogeography has used field experiments and biophysical modeling to determine the mechanisms responsible for setting geographic limits of species.

Their field studies are currently being carried out on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of North America, the Pacific coast of Asia, and the Atlantic coasts of Europe and Noth Africa.
