New clues to predict tipping points for marsh survival

Sea-level rise, sediment starvation and other environmental woes pose increasing threats to coastal wetlands worldwide. But a new study could help stem the losses by giving scientists a broader understanding of which wetlands are most at risk and why. The study assessed wetland distribution and resilience in hundreds of US estuaries at five different spatial scales. Its findings will help guide future efforts to preserve or restore threatened wetlands.
