Would you be interested in a book on living shorelines for Florida's saltwater and estuarine systems?
Please help! We'd like to know if you are interested in a book about LIVING SHORELINES FOR FLORIDA. In the comments, please be specific about your interest, and why. For example, answer "YES, (or no), because..."
The book would focus on salt-water/estuarine systems, but would also include conceptual information on freshwater ponds.
Chapters would include information on mangroves, living shoreline plants, oyster reefs, how living shorelines concepts can work for you even if you live on a canal, and basic "how-to" information. There will even be information on creating upland buffers to filter out pollutants before they reach the water, and about how living shorelines relate to current topics like blue carbon and sea level rise.
The book will also include many photos and graphics to make understanding how it all works easy, and to help readers see examples of living shorelines in action.
Thanks for your feedback!
