Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation announces the digital release of the organization’s complete scientific publications list. And wow, what a list it turned out to be! The sheer volume and breadth of entries you’ll find there is symbolic of not only an incredible amount of hard work, but also SCCF’s long-running dedication to providing robust science to our community.
The important role that science is playing in understanding and finding solutions to COVID-19 is more clear than ever. What science does to inform and improve public health, it also does for conservation of wildlife and nature. SCCF’s scientific research is what ultimately is used to create tangible conservation and land management plans, while also serving as an important resource for community education.
That is why SCCF is proud to have assembled this list and make it readily available for our community to read and engage with.
While we all continue to practice self-isolation, it’s a good time to catch up on your SCCF reading, so don’t hesitate to jump in and explore. Whether you’re interested in the biology of our island’s Diamondback Terrapins, oyster reef restoration efforts, mangroves and their myriad ecosystem services, or want to become more informed about our red tides, there’s something for everyone in this extensive list.
Keep in mind that this list will continue to grow and be updated over time, so be sure to swing back through regularly in order to stay current on all of the great work coming out of SCCF. Also note that there is a lot of information here, and it’s possible that a publication or two are missing, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you know of an entry that needs to be added.
We hope you enjoy reading through these as much as we enjoyed putting them together for you. Click here to learn more about our coastal ecosystems.
