  • BRIDGES is a recurring feature of J-NABS intended to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and information between basic and applied researchers in benthic science. Articles in this series will focus on topical research areas and linkages between basic and applied aspects of research, monitoring, policy, and education. Readers with ideas for topics should contact Associate Editors Michael Barbour and Marty Gurtz. Monitoring programs have been using volunteers to an increasing extent in… CONTINUE READING
