Living on the Edge: Mangroves

Smithsonian TMON
Mangroves provide essential habitat and coastline protection but are under threat. In addition to deforestation, climate change is altering mangrove forest habitats and causing important consequences for marine organisms and the humans who rely on them for sustenance and economic stability. MarineGEO scientists are studying mangrove expansion due to warming winters and the threats to this valuable ecosystem. Music: "Warmer" by Andy G.

Carbon Sinks in the Ocean

Smithsonian TMON
Carbon released into the atmosphere by human activities will have important consequences for our ocean and our world. Understanding where and how carbon cycles through the environment will help people make decisions about management and conservation of our marine resources. To answer the "where" and "how" of coastal carbon cycling, MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellow Lisa Schile is employing the most unlikely of tools -- teabags.

Biodiversity Buffers

Smithsonian TMON
Coastal marine environments are impacted by human disturbance. Dock pilings allow MarineGEO researchers to study these impacts in a standardized way around the world to understand whether biodiversity serves to stabilize ecosystems in the face of disturbance. MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellow Simon Brandl looks at the hidden diversity of little fishes and invertebrates on dock pilings to see if species rich dock pilings can better buffer these ecosystems against the effects of habitat loss. If higher diversity buffers against disturbance, there is incentive to preserve it.
