Changes in a California Estuary

This book describes the "hard-won bits and pieces" that have emerged from decades of scientific research at Elkhorn Slough. Scientists have been drawn to the slough and its watershed since the 1920s. In the past thirty years, the burgeoning of scientific and educational institutions ringing Monterey Bay, combined with the slough's importance as a critical wetland, has
focused research efforts on Elkhorn Slough's rich natural resources and the effects of human activities on its ecosystems. We have envisioned this project as a summary of that research, a chronicle of the natural and human impacts that have shaped the slough ecosystem, and a snapshot of conditions at the beginning of the twenty- first century.
