Despite the rising sea levels, new model suggests an increase in the area of intertidal wetlands in the Hudson River in New York.
Global salt marsh erosion is largely driven by regular weather patterns, rather than the occasional violent storm.
Piping plovers are facing habitat loss and breeding space as a result of wetland drainage in the Great Plains.
In addition to the raging wildfires, the Pacific Northwest lowlands are experiencing devastation in mountain pond habitats as a result of climate change. According to recent forecast models, this just may be new norm that amphibians have to get used to.
Invasive species are becoming more and more of a problem, especially as climate change warms parts of the Northern Hemisphere, making regions more habitable for invaders. This is particularly true for wetlands, a new study finds, where changing temperatures are tipping the scales in favor of nonnative plant species.
For the greater part of the last two decades, China has been rapidly developing a series of conjoined seawalls along nearly half the entire length of its mainland's coastline.
