Sea restoration projects quilt a ‘mosaic of habitats’ with striking results

Press/Media: ResearchPopular

Description

  • The concept of restoring more than one type of marine habitat at a time — such as oyster reefs, seagrass meadows and salt marshes — is becoming increasingly popular as scientists and conservationists learn about the advantages of this approach.
  • Many studies clearly show the mutual benefits that integrated habitats provide to each other, as well as the larger benefits offered to the ecosystem.
  • Yet other studies show mixed results, drawing attention to the complex nature of this approach.
  • Numerous seascape restoration projects are taking place around the world, including in the coastal bays of Virginia, U.S., the sea off the coast of South Australia, and the estuaries and lochs in the U.K.
