Coastal Bays Newsletter
Coastal Bays Benthic Communities newsletter.
The role of benthic communities in the health of Maryland's Coastal Bays
In collaboration with the University of Maryland's Cooperative Extension Service at the Wye Mills Research and Education Center, EcoCheck (NOAA - UMCES partnership) has produced a newsletter on the history and current trends of benthic communities in Maryland's Coastal Bays. Aquatic grasses and shellfish are important components of a healthy ecosystem because they provide a variety of ecosystem services, improve water quality, and are commercially valuable.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
