Mangrove islands like these along the upper Lostman’s River in Everglades National Park protect coastlines from stormy waves, storm surge, and erosion – expected to increasingly threaten coastal cities and townships as sea levels rise. Investments in “soft” engineering protections against storm damage, like wetlands and oyster reef restoration, can be cheaper in the long run than seawalls, breakwaters, and groins, and offer benefits for wildlife, fisheries, and recreation.

Special issue of ESA Frontiers assesses the impacts of climate change on people and ecosystems, and strategies for adaptation

The November 2013 issue of Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment is devoted to an assessment of climate change effects on ecosystems, and the consequences for people. Impacts on natural systems have direct consequences for food production, water, storm damage, and fire intensity. Working with, rather than against, ecosystems may help society to adapt to changes that threaten lives and property. Adaptation efforts may need to think beyond the preservation of historic natural communities.
