Objective:

The overall objective of this research project is to develop a suite of ecological indicators to rapidly assess the integrity and sustainability of wetlands in west coast estuaries. We propose to develop an integrated suite of indicators to evaluate impacts of stressors across levels of biological organization, trophic structure, life stage, and time and space.
