This study evaluated the effects of three types of shoreline treatments (living shorelines, natural marshes, and bulkheads) on the ecosystem services provided by the shoreline, specifically in terms of habitat creation. The study was conducted along the Pine Knoll Shores in North Carolina (U.S.). The results indicate that living shorelines provide more ecosystem services (mainly nursery habitat) than hardened, bulkhead shorelines.
