South Atlantic LCC-funded study that produced beach birds indicator published earlier this year

Earlier this year, Dr. Betsy von Holle and her colleagues published a study in the Journal of Wildlife Management about the effects of sea-level rise on coastal nesting species. The paper is open access, so you can read it for free here: https://wildlife.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jwmg.21633. The study shows that sea-level rise is increasing the vulnerability of the [...]

When it rains, it pours…and increases soil erosion potential in a changing climate

Anyone who has seen a gully carved by water flowing over land or a muddied creek following a rainstorm has witnessed soil erosion. Beyond its messiness, water-caused soil erosion can have far reaching impacts. When nutrients and organic matter in soils are washed away, decreased soil fertility affects food production, sediment entering streams and rivers [...]

The Calhoun Experimental Forest: A legacy of erosion and the future of sustainability

From surface to core, the Earth’s radius is almost 4,000 miles, but only the uppermost sliver of that rocky expanse, called the critical zone, sustains life. This zone extends from the base of weathered rock to the treetops, and includes water, soils, vegetation, and animals. A new study, led by Duke University and funded with [...]
