Integrating ecosystem resilience into coastal planning for the persistence of natural flood protection and wetland ecosystem services

Cluster Leader: Dr Martin Skov, Bangor University

  • Fundamental biological and geo-morphological research to examine the resilience of marshes to environmental disturbance or change
  • Addresses salt marsh ecosystem services as crucial protection of our coastline against floods and erosion with direct relevance for shoreline management and planning
  • Important in regulation of the coastal environment providing recreational space, food, and habitat for protected species such as birds
