DECEMBER 2019 | New Publication: Ecosystem-Based Tsunami Mitigation in Biodiversity Hotspots
As sea levels rise and adverse weather events become more common, vulnerable coastal communities are at increasing risk of devastation from storm surges and tsunami. Tom Wanger led an international research team to compare the effects of man-made and ecosystem protection to propose a hybrid approach including mangroves and coral reefs in coastal protection plans for tropical biodiversity hotspots. The results were published in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution.
