Announcing the STRI Tuesday afternoon seminar for January 15, 2013 at 4:00 pm in the Earl S. Tupper auditorium:
Speaker: Catherine Lovelock, Professor, The School of Biological Science, The University of Queensland
Title:  Mangroves and Climate Change
Abstract:  Mangrove forests occur at sea level on tropical and sub-tropical coasts. They provide a range of ecosystem services that support biodiversity and productivity of the coastal zone. Their position in the intertidal results in exposure to a range of environmental changes associated with climate change. Here I describe the complexity of potential outcomes of climate change on mangrove forests by considering how mangroves in Moreton Bay respond to sea level rise, how mangroves in New Zealand have been influenced by El Nino events, and finally how intense storms affect mangroves in the arid zone in the Exmouth Gulf, Western Australia.
