Dr. Judith Weis spent a good part of her career working on Salt Marshes as a Professor and Researcher at Rutgers University. She is here to talk about Salt Marshes, their importance and how we need to manage them in the face of Climate Change.
Judith literally wrote the book on Salt Marshes (with Coauthor Carol Butler). I wanted to have her on the program so she can share how salt marshes play a role in protecting shorelines in the Northeastern US (and other places around the world) They may not be as pretty as coral reefs, but their shoreline protection, nursery habitat function, and sediment stabilization functions are extremely important.
