Research at the Reserve Series

Salt marsh migration into maritime forests in the Northeast

Tuesday, March 12 – Virtual Only Presentation
6:30PM – 7:30PM

Learn about the impacts of sea level rise on salt marshes in the northeast and what is currently known about the process of marsh migration into forests. Research in Waquoit Bay and sites in New York and New Jersey has shown that plant communities in areas where forest is transitioning to marsh differ in species composition between sites, and that plant ability to survive tidal flooding also differs between sites. Find out what factors stress and shape plant communities in forest-marsh transition areas.

Andrew Payne, Ph.D. Candidate, Drexel University. – ” Growing up on a dairy farm in western New York, I always had a love of the outdoors, which led me to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies at SUNY Purchase College. After graduating, I held a variety of jobs including wildlife management at JFK airport, bird surveying in New England salt marshes, and water quality testing on NYC reservoirs. After taking some time to pursue a career as a musician in NYC, I eventually got my master’s at the University of New Hampshire which led to my current position as PhD candidate at Drexel University. ”
