Abstract

Riccardo Losciale investigated the vulnerability of seagrass habitats to climate change within World Heritage properties. He found that these habitats are highly vulnerable to climate change and local adaptive capacity is low. Site managers of World Heritage properties will benefit from the result of this study.
