Aquatic and coastal biodiversity

 

Climate change will impact not only terrestrial landscapes but also aquatic ecosystems. Often less visible and less accessible, aquatic ecosystems can be overlooked in wider biodiversity and climate change management. However, these aquatic ecosystems are often home to unique endemic populations and can be an indication of the broader health of water systems and surrounds.

This research addressed climate impacts on freshwater, estuarine and coastal ecosystems to support management, improve conservation plans and promote resilience.

New research on the impact and construction of sea walls also provides guidance on how to conserve and strengthen sandy beach ecosystems. These resources will aid in the management of wetland, estuary and coastal ecosystems, to adapt to climate change.
