ESSIC Visiting Associate Research Professor Ariana Sutton-Grier recently gave a lecture for the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science seminar series on how science can better inform climate mitigation and adaptation as well as ecosystem restoration and protection.


In the comprehensive presentation, Sutton-Grier demonstrates how human-environmental changes affect ecosystem function, and how that subsequently affects ecosystem services. As examples, she focused the presentation on natural infrastructure, coastal blue carbon, and the relationship between biodiversity and human health. 


Professor Ariana Sutton-Grier is an ecosystem ecologist with expertise in wetland ecology and restoration, biodiversity, biogeochemistry, climate change, ecosystem services, and nature and human health.
