Could Seaweed Save California’s Coast?

CSU News article highlights report co-authored by EOS scientists

A California State University News article this week highlights a report co-authored by the Director of the EOS Center and Professor of Biology Karina Nielsen and Professor of Biology Katharyn Boyer. The report examines the potential of eelgrass to protect aquatic life from the increasing threat of ocean acidification. "Investing in eelgrass and kelp conservation and restoration is a win-win," Nielsen explains. "No other research holds as much promise for having clear, cost-effective benefits without the risk of unintended consequences."
