AP Reports on Research into Superstorm Sandy’s Effects on Tidal Marshes

The Washington Post, Boston Herald, Wall Street Journal, Newsday and Portland Press Herald were among several news organizations to carry an Associated Press article on research being conducted by the University of Maine, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, University of Connecticut and University of Delaware on the effects of Superstorm Sandy on plant and bird communities in tidal marshes from Maine to Virginia. The study aims to determine what makes marshes and these communities more vulnerable when it comes to severe weather. Brian Olsen, professor in UMaine’s School of Biology and Ecology and co-principal investigator of the study, was interviewed for the article.
