Columbia, SC 29208
Six treatments and six replicates within treatments
Replicated at three sites with varying tidal ranges:
Cocodrie, La -- 30-40 cm
North Inlet, SC -- 1.5 m
PIE, MA -- 3-4 m
Growth response of S. alterniflora
will likely be affected by varying
the marsh platform (MP) relative
to local mean tidal range.
Platform varies from
0.5 m – 1.33 m
Low marsh morphology
High marsh morphology
Within MHT & MLT
Further from MHT & MLT
NAPP – Cocodrie, LA (microtidal site)
NAPP – PIE LTER, MA (macrotidal site)
Increase in aboveground biomass
as you decrease height of platform
