Landscape and ecological modelling: Development of a plant community prediction tool for Estonian coastal wetlands

Research output: ThesisDoctoral ThesisResearch

Abstract

Estonian coastal wetlands are of international importance as they support characteristic biological diversity. Their limited extent and distribution mean that these wetlands are of high conservation concern, and as such have been identified as a priority in the European Union Habitats Directive. These wetlands are typified by a flat, extensive landscape, situated between the micro-tidal (<0.02m), brackish Baltic Sea and a forest interior. Due to the low relief these wetlands may be under threat from sea level rise.
