Research into livelihood options and food security issues related to mangrove deforestation continues as my major research track. The Journal of Land Use Science has accepted a paper on international aid and how it relates to mangrove deforestation. I am also examining the sustainability of aquaculture in mangrove regions, again as it pertains to food security. Currently I have two major research goals, examining how local populations have resisted mangrove deforestation and utilizing Idrisi Land Use Change Modeler to examine recent regrowth of mangroves along the Ecuadorian coast. I will be presenting the findings of my research into food security and development issues related to the transition from mangrove forest to aquaculture at LASA 2012.
