Environmental work by a Tiburon-based researcher in the shallows of San Rafael Bay to protect the shorelines has been documented in a new book. The book, “Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection,” ... is the first to compile, synthesize and interpret the science and practice of nature-based shoreline protection, according to the state Coastal Conservancy. “Our work in the bay is a terrific example of living shoreline concepts put into practice,” said Kathy Boyer, professor of biology at San Francisco State University’s Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, who led the work noted in the book. “We explain the importance of the data we’re collecting for maintaining healthy subtidal habitats and we give clear, practical instructions for creating a sustainable living shoreline.” Marin Independent Journal
