This is Emily Knight, Manager, Lenfest Ocean Program. Please join us for a one-hour webinar on Tuesday, February 5 at 2:30 PM Eastern time/11:30 AM Pacific time featuring Dr. Brian Silliman, Professor of Marine Conservation Biology at Duke University. He will discuss his research to improve coastal restoration by testing whether biological partnerships between organisms can increase yields and decrease costs under a variety of environmental conditions. Of particular interest to the MARMAM community is that one of Dr. Silliman's case studies (California) involves sea otters.

Background: Salt marshes and other coastal habitats have been degraded worldwide by development, altered river flows, and other human impacts. Many land managers have sought to mitigate these effects through large-scale restoration - planting marsh grasses, seagrasses, oysters, and other ecologically important species. Current restoration practice stipulates that managers should space out plantings of grasses and other organisms to ensure they do not compete with each other for space or nutrients. However, small-scale field experiments have suggested that restoration success could be significantly improved by taking advantage of natural partnerships between organisms. Thus, the Lenfest Ocean Program is supporting Dr. Brian Silliman and colleagues to conduct experiments at four active restoration sites around the world, including North Carolina, California, The Netherlands, and China.
