New publication: Sargassum impedes nesting turtles

Hot off the press, my collaborators and I just had a new article come out in the journal Climate Change Ecology. The title does a good job of summarizing the big take home message: The Atlantic Sargassum invasion impedes beach access for nesting sea turtles. My coauthers (Dr. Seth Stapleton, Dr. Craig Layman, and Dr. Martha Burford Reiskind) and I focus on the hawksbill rookery at Jumby Bay, Antigua, to show how coastal Sargassum accumulation affects spatiotemporal patterns in nesting. Stay posted for more Sargassum-related work coming out soon.
