Research on the Ecological Conflict between Coastal Wetland and Port Construction—A Case Study of the Meizhou Gulf


This article is a study on the management of wetland. The future impact of landscape of coastal wetland with the constant changes of human activities is discussed on the basis of the theory and methodology of landscape ecology. Solutions to the contradictions of ecological protection and port construction are put forward.
