Welcome to the Coastal Plant Ecology Laboratory at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
the goals of our work are to:
- Examine the linkages between key environmental drivers and the health, reproduction and resilience of seagrass populations across broad spatial and temporal scales
- Understand how impacts of increased anthropogenic disturbances and future climate change scenarios will affect the survival and function of seagrass populations
- Communicate research results to resource agencies and policy makers charged with management of seagrass habitats in order to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of coastal management.
