Join us for Conservation Matters: Terrestrial Invertebrates and Plants on the Dune System of Kiawah Island with Dr. Eric McElroy
Watch and learn as Dr Eric McElroy from the College of Charleston shares his fascinating research results from his 2019 study of Terrestrial Invertebrates and Plants on the Dune System of Kiawah Island. Plants provide stability, protection, and biodiversity on the dunes and are important for the ecological health of Kiawah Island. It is interesting that although the dunes may appear similar when viewing from the beach, there are significant differences in the specific survey areas.
