主讲人简介

        Richard Fuller教授主要研究人类活动对自然的影响,以及一些破坏性影响的有效修复。他的许多工作都是跨学科的,侧重于人与自然之间的相互作用、相互作用关系的加强,以及这些相互作用关系如何为生物多样性危机的解决提供方案。此外,Richard Fuller教授还是一个鸟类专家和观鸟爱好者,关于Richard Fuller教授的详细介绍请见:www.fullerlab.org 和 www.facebook.com/fullerlab


内容简介

  Being neither terrestrial nor marine, tidal wetlands are poorly mapped, and our understanding of how their distribution is changing over time is extremely limited. For biodiversity and ecosystem services that depend on tidal wetlands globally, this is a serious shortfall. Here I present maps of tidal wetlands globally using a newly-derived remote sensing method, and show how tidal wetlands have changed in extent and distribution over the past few decades. I discuss natural and anthropogenic drivers of this change, and provide a prognosis for the global conservation of tidal wetland-dependent biodiversity and ecosystem services.
