Maryland Sea Grant seeks to hire a Legal Fellow and a Graduate Assistant. More details.
To determine the accumulative effects of current, increased and decreased levels of multiple stressors on a representative coastal system; to determine how ecological complexity, variability, and spatial structure affect the response of a representative coastal system to multiple stressors and the ability of managers to predict that response; and to determine how a variety of management options may affect both the biota and the economic value of the system.
