This project focuses on seagrass communities and is using experimental validation linking changes in functional traits with variations in community processes (e.g. oxygen production, carbon fixation) to parametrize a model that will predict the future variations in meadow functioning. Dr. Noisette’s project bridges descriptive field studies in seagrass community ecology with predictive tools to advance knowledge and technology which will support decisionmakers in elaborating policies to protect Canada’s environment.
