Journals and Publications
Ocean-facing coastlines are dynamic, yet humans have engineered them in attempts to protect physical structures (such as this lighthouse in Cape Hatteras, NC) from disturbance, including extreme weather events. In the May issue of Frontiers, Feagin et al. discuss several benefits of using natural vegetation as part of strategies to improve coastal protection.
ESA’s 100th Annual Meeting will be held August 9-14, 2015. Join us in beautiful downtown Baltimore to celebrate ESA’s first century and usher in the next. www.esa.org/baltimore
