    Differential responses of tidal marsh area and delivery of ecosystem services to rising sea level
Abstract - Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century, and one of the biggest potential impacts of climate change will be sea level rise. More than 50% of the world’s population lives in the coastal zone, and coastal wetlands, tidal marshes and mangroves provide ecosystem services that benefit these coastal residents. These services include disturbance regulation (e.g. shoreline protection potential), biological productivity (e.g. primary production) and waste treatment (e.g. nitrogen (N) retention and removal).
