Artificial structures such as buildings, telephone poles, and boat docks are ubiquitous in the modern environment and are often thought of as having negative impacts on wildlife. However, the role that artificial structures can play in mitigating the impacts of stressors, including climate change, on affected species is increasingly being recognized. In addition to a discussion of this topic, Dr. Cannizzo will highlight a case study which examines the role of boat docks in facilitating the climate-mediated range expansion of a crab into a sub-optimal novel ecosystem.
