Simulating seawater in the lab is more complicated than just getting the salt concentration right.
When the storms come in, plants could help secure natural defences. But climate change is giving them problems of their own.
Invasive species might suffer from a change in conditions in tidal areas, but their hybrid offspring may have genes to survive.
New research shows that marsh plants may be lying in wait in marshes-to-be, waiting for geological processes to catch up.
We think of sea-level rise as a long-term threat, but sometimes the change is catastrophically quick, and it’s the recovery that is long-term.
