Coastal wetlands are one of the most economically valuable ecosystems in the world. In the United States, the ecosystem services provided by wetlands are worth billions of dollars and include flood protection, erosion control, seafood, water quality enhancement, carbon storage, recreation, and wildlife habitat. Unfortunately, these ecosystems are also highly sensitive to changing climate conditions. Past research on climate impacts to coastal wetlands have concentrated primarily on sea-level rise, largely ignoring the important influence of changing temperature and precipitation patterns. Understanding the impact of temperature and precipitation on coastal wetlands can help natural and cultural resource managers...
Coastal wetlands are some of the most productive and valuable habitats in the world. Louisiana contains 40% of the nation’s coastal wetlands, which provide critical habitat for waterfowl and fisheries, as well as many other benefits, such as storm surge protection for coastal communities and carbon sequestration that can help to mitigate climate change. Wetland loss rates in Louisiana are the highest in the world, with nearly 1.2 million acres lost since the 1930s, an area 3/4 the size of Delaware leading to extensive restoration efforts with impacts to multiple stakeholders. To ensure successful restoration of these vital habitats, it is necessary to understand the impacts of sea-level rise and wetland loss on...
