Young Scientist Webinar Series

The Cape Perpetua Collaborative is hosting a Young Scientist Webinar Series featuring graduate students and postdocs sharing their ocean research. This series will take place October – April on the second Tuesday of the Month (Oct 13, Nov 10, Dec 8, Jan 12, Feb 9, Mar 9, Apr 13) at 5:30pm.

October 13 at 5:30pm
Presenting Caitlin Magel, PhD student at Oregon State University


Description
Seagrass and macroalgae provide many important services to coastal communities. Located in estuaries along the coast, these vegetated habitats are vulnerable to both ocean- and land-based stressors. This talk will investigate the importance of various environmental drivers using 15 years of seagrass surveys within and among four Pacific Northwest estuaries. Perspectives on the long-term persistence of these habitats and implications for estuary resilience will be explored.
