Research Theme: USGS scientists will develop predictions of climate-related alterations of the distribution and abundance of oysters and seagrass, both of which provide critical habitats that serve as nurseries for estuarine fishes and crabs. In addition, the project will look at climate impacts to tidal marsh, including effects on wetland restoration and juvenile salmon habitat. The research will provide insights into future changes that impact wildlife and economically important species, and will help land managers understand the ramifications of the changes that are coming.
