Description

Geukensia demissa, a species of mussel on the coastline of Georgia, is at risk of experiencing detrimental thermal stress due to climate change. Shading provided by the mutualistic, salt marsh cordgrass, Spartina alterniflora, may have a role in the regulation of thermal stress conditions of G. demissa.
