Reddit AMA on Climate Change and Wetlands
« on: February 06, 2015, 02:30:29 PM »
Today's AMA (questions and answers) on /r/science on reddit might be of interest to some here:

Science AMA Series: We are Maureen Ryan, Noll Steinweg, and Mara Healy. We study wetlands and look at how they respond to climate change. AMA!

For the past few years we’ve worked on a project looking at wetland hydrology and animal use in the Pacific Northwest. We’re interested in how wetlands dry up and get wet again, how they respond to precipitation events, and how different animals (mainly amphibians) use the wetlands based on the wetland’s hydrology. We’re interested in how wetlands respond to climate change and what animals will be able to use wetlands in the future.
Currently we’re working to expand the scope of our temporary wetland monitoring to the east coast of North America. For the past four years we’ve worked in mountain wetlands in Washington State, but this spring we will be working with vernal pools in Massachusetts. Learn more about our current project here:
We will be back later to answer your questions, as us anything!
