    Falklands included in US universities and NASA project to keep track of kelp floating forests

    Floating Forests users have helped map kelp forests along the entire coast of California from 1984 to 2011

    Kelp forests grow along coastlines worldwide, largely hidden from view. Like rainforests, they're among the planet's most important ecosystems: beautiful but fragile habitats for a wide array of plant and animal species. But scientists believe kelp forests are being threatened by climate change. Now, researchers from UCLA and seven other universities have an improved tool for tracking these shifting ecosystems, the largest of which is about 5 miles long.
