Hurricane effects are increasing in recent times; every day we hear in the news reports of a new high-impact meteorological phenomenon in different parts of the globe. Accordingly, scientific evidence strongly suggests that global weather is a changing product of anthropogenic activities and that extreme meteorological events such as hurricanes, typhoons, droughts, and frosts will increase in frequency and intensity. Coastal ecosystems have always been exposed to those events, therefore they have evolved a tight relationship with them and species...
