As sea levels rise, the potential loss of coastal habitats is a threat across the globe. This is of particular concern in the eastern United States, where coastlines are largely developed and offer few open spaces for habitats to move inland if present natural lands are lost. Considering the current conditions of coastlines, as well as future development scenarios, Steven Handel will discuss strategies to help maintain our coastal character and the ecological services of coastal habitats that are critical to the social, cultural, and environmental well-being of our region in this free and public lecture presented by Harvard Museum of Natural History in collaboration with the Association to Preserve Cape Cod.
This lecture features Steven Handel, Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolution, Rutgers University; Visiting Professor in Landscape Architecture, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University.
