Human impacts on coastal ecosystems
Monday, 3 March

Ecosystems that encompass watersheds and their coastal receiving waters are under particular threat from human impact. New findings show how nutrient inputs from rivers into the most productive areas of the global ocean, called marginal seas, make those seas vulnerable to damming, land-use practices, and increasing world population. Other research indicates that the long-term sustainability of deltas is generally compromised more by large-scale engineering projectswhich result in shoreline erosion, threatened mangroves and wetlands, and increased salinization of cultivated landthan by sea-level rise. New studies of bays offer insights about phosphorus ranging from why Florida Bay has seagrass-killing algal blooms despite extremely low phosphorus from the Everglades to evidence from the Chesapeake Bay watershed that 90 percent of the human-related phosphorus inputs are retained in the watershed.
