Dr. Sally Little, ECSA Conference Coordinator, Nottingham Trent University
Sally Little is a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Geography at Nottingham Trent University, a Visiting Research Associate at the Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies at the University of Hull (IECS) and Conference Coordinator for the Estuarine and Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA). Sally is a marine and freshwater biologist and has specialist knowledge of the structural and functional ecology of freshwater, estuarine and marine benthic communities (at individual, through to community level, specialising in macroinvertebrates), environmental policy, legislation and management and toxicology. Her research specialises in the assessment, investigation and prediction of environmental, anthropogenic and climatic pressures upon ecosystem structure and functioning in a range of aquatic environments (from marine through to freshwater), specialising in estuaries and coasts, but including karst caves, chalk streams and rivers.
Sally specialises in upper estuarine tidal freshwater zones (the freshwater-saltwater interface), particularly in relation to the impact of future climate-driven increases in saline incursion on estuarine and riverine ecology. Recent research has included investigating the impact of environmental change on the physical, social and economic state of the Humber estuary and East coast margin and developing a new functional approach to defining, delineating and managing estuaries.
