Presentation Transcript

  1. Vegetation, erosion and runoff 2. Energy Dissipation 1. Transpiration 1. Runoff volume 2. Rainfall scour 3. Soil infiltration 4. Erosion 4. Soil Binding 3. Decomposition

  2. Downstream consequences • Clearing: increased erosion;increased runoff;reduced biodiversity Overfishing, Climate, Crown-of-Thorns, etc. Mangrove changes Coral death Algal increase

  3. Ridge to Reef Management • Addresses interactions between humans and the environment over multiples scales to preserve and restore ecosystems and ecosystem linkages

  4. Threats to Connectivity • Land use change • Population increase • Fishing pressure • Climate change
