Comparison of nekton utilization of smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) marsh based on marsh size and degree of isolation from like habitat : do size and site location matter? 2009 597 Influence of salt marsh size and proximity to like habitat on nekton use was examined. Comparisons were made among six naturally occurring isolated island marshes, three each of small (~400-1,000 m ) and large 2 (~3,000-10,000 m2) island size class...
The influence of salinity on the germination and distribution of Taxodium distichum (L.) Rich., bald cypress, along the northeast Cape Fear River 2009 1344 A survey of three sites along the Northeast Cape Fear River, NC indicated that natural regeneration of Taxodium distichum (bald cypress) only occurred at the most oligohaline site along a salinity gradient. Floodwater salinity from 2000-2006 at this ...
Surface and small-scale processes of biogeochemical cycling of organic matter in tidal sediments 2009 538 Despite their exceptionally high productivity, freshwater and oligohaline tidal marshes are rarely studied in terms of their biogeochemistry because of their highly variable and diverse conditions. Such environments are particularly interesting bec...
