RESEARCH

Camille Stagg began working for the Wetland and Aquatic Research Center (formerly National Wetlands Research Center) in 2009, where she maintains an expertise in coastal wetland ecology with specific interests in coastal wetland function, resilience and restoration. Her research focuses on how ecosystem functions, such as elevation change, carbon cycling, and resilience, are affected by global stressors. Her goal is to understand how these processes respond to changing conditions, including rising sea levels, elevated atmospheric CO2, and land use change, to provide guidance for management and restoration of these dynamic ecosystems.
