Delta Science Program Brown Bag Seminar: The Delta Transformed, Loss of Food Supplies to Consumers, and Potential for Recovery
Dr. James Cloern (U.S. Geological Survey), Dr. Letitia Grenier (San Francisco Estuary Institute), and Dr. Stephen Andrews (Resource Management Associates) will discuss a recently published study that uses measures of landscape change to estimate how much has been lost from the primary productivity that supports aquatic food webs in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. They also consider the potential for recovery of those lost functions, and present a simple approach for modeling the outcomes of different restoration scenarios.
The open access study is available at: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.147097
