VCR LTER contributes to synthesis on coastal armoring

Department News

Recent work from researchers at several LTER sites has synthesized the current understanding of ecological impacts of man-made coastal armoring. The study looked at diverse systems, including constructed oyster reefs at the Virginia Coast Reserve LTER. Former UVA Environmental Sciences student Kyle Emery (now a PhD student at UC Santa Barbara) is a coauthor on the study and is quoted in an article on the knowledge gaps it identified.
