Drs. Julia Cherry, Shelby Rinehart, and Behzad Mortazivi, as well as grad students Emily Fromenthal and Jacob Dybiec, presented talks in a session on coastal wetland restoration and management in the Anthropocene at the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Grand Rapids, MI. These talks provided overviews of our research on the recovery of carbon storage and nitrogen removal in restored marshes of the MS-AL Gulf Coast, using those data to develop a metric-based model of functional recovery, comparisons of insect communities in created and natural tidal marshes, and the effects of burrowing crabs on marsh sediments.
