FROM ALASKA TO BAJA: COOPERATIVE RESEARCH EFFORT DOCUMENTS KELP MIGRATION
Predicting changes in structure and function of ecosystems requires large-scale and long-term studies. We integrated kelp forest data from 469 sites/373 species spanning Alaska, USA, to Baja California, Mexico.
Our results suggest that coastal communities that are dependent on kelp forests will be more impacted in the southern portion of the California Current region, highlighting the urgency of implementing adaptive strategies to sustain livelihoods and ensure food security.
The San Diego Foundation recently awarded a grant of $39,743 to TRNERR and SWIA to study some of the effects of climate change in the Tijuana Estuary. This grant was one of three to fund studies on climate change research. Read more at this link
