An Ecosystem Feels the Human Touch: Some great work from Sanpisa Sritrairat and Dorothy Peteet of NASA GISS in New York. Sometimes field work in astrobiology and Earth science doesn’t have to be in far-off locales. This study was from the Hudson River estuary, yet the results have global implications.
Sritrairat and her colleagues showed that human beings have been the biggest driver of ecosystem change in the region - more so than major natural changes in Earth’s climate that have happened in the past.
