The Unnatural History of Salt Marshes
A lecture on the biology of salt marshes, tonight at the Arsenal.
Natural habitats and ecosystems are delicate things, and in this lecture, you’ll learn the natural history of salt marshes and their plants and animals, along with the “unnatural history” of how humans have altered and damaged them physically, chemically, and biologically. The presentation is given by Judith Weiss, a professor of biological science at Rutgers University and an expert on estuarine biology. She recently co-authored the book Salt Marshes: A Natural and Unnatural History, and it will be available for purchase at the event.
