Young Scientist Webinar Series
The Cape Perpetua Collaborative is hosting a Young Scientist Webinar Series featuring graduate students and postdocs sharing their ocean research. This series will take place October – April on the second Tuesday of the Month.
October 13 at 5:30pm – Presenting Caitlin Magel, PhD student at Oregon State University
Description
Seagrass and macroalgae provide many important services to coastal communities. Located in estuaries along the coast, these vegetated habitats are vulnerable to both ocean- and land-based stressors. This talk will investigate the importance of various environmental drivers using 15 years of seagrass surveys within and among four Pacific Northwest estuaries. Perspectives on the long-term persistence of these habitats and implications for estuary resilience will be explored.
About the Presenter
Caitlin Magel is a PhD student at Oregon State University studying the ecology seagrass and macroalgae in in Pacific Northwest estuaries to better understand adaptation to biogeochemical changes in the environment. Her academic interests include estuarine ecology, land use, biogeochemical cycling and ocean acidification.
