California Coastal Climate Change Research

Was just sent these great informative short videos about research being done to understand how climate change affects coastal communities. Coastal organisms live in areas with much day to day variation. There are the changing tides, the amount sun exposure, and also shade from tidal zone seaweeds and rock crevices. This makes coastal animals, like bivalves and sea stars, and their ecology important indicators of how climatic changes affect the future of some ecosystems. Enjoy and feel free to post any questions you may have!
