2016: SAV Trends in the Hudson River Estuary
Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Trends in Hudson River Estuary
Friday, December 2, from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Thank you to everyone who attended the webinar and to our speakers for enlightening us about the ongoing research on SAV in the Hudson River Estuary! Selected presentations are available in the agenda below.
This webinar was a follow-up to a fall 2014 workshop Restoration of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) in the Hudson River Estuary, which brought together experts to discuss SAV restoration in the Hudson Estuary, following a historic loss of Vallisneria americana after storm events in 2011.
The purpose of the December 2, 2016 webinar was to bring together resource managers, scientists, and others to learn about trends on recovery of Vallisneria americana and related scientific research in the interim. Next steps in research and monitoring were also discussed.
