SALT MARSH VEGETATION CHANGE AFTER A SHORT-TERM …

The zonation of Scirpus mariqueter and Scirpus tabernaemontani communities is conspicuous in salt marshes of the Changjiang estuary. However, diking, which partly restricted tidal fluctuation in a salt marsh, resulted in the invasion of S. tabernaemontani into S. mariqueter communities. To explore the role of the interaction between the two species in the vegetation change, the structure of S ...

The structure of salt marsh soil mesofauna food webs – The ...

Mesofauna taxa fill key trophic positions in soil food webs, even in terrestrial–marine boundary habitats characterized by frequent natural disturbances. Salt marshes represent such boundary habitats, characterized by frequent inundations increasing from the terrestrial upper to the marine pioneer zone. Despite the high abundance of soil mesofauna in salt marshes and their important function ...

salt marsh | Description, Ecology, & Facts | Britannica

Salt marsh, area of low, flat, poorly drained ground that is subject to daily or occasional flooding by salt water or brackish water and is covered with a thick mat of grasses and plants such as sedges and rushes. Maritime salt marshes are variably subject to tidal action.

What is a Salt Marsh?

What is a Salt Marsh? Salt marshes serve as the transition from the ocean to the land, where fresh and salt water mix. Salt marsh plants are salt tolerant and adapted to water levels that fluctuate with the tide. Tides carry in nutrients that stimulate plant growth in the marsh and carry out organic material that feeds fish and other organisms.

Salt-marsh aggradation in response to late-Holocene sea ...

Because the rate of high salt-marsh aggradation lagged or exceeded the rate of higher high water (HHW) increase at various times, the high salt-marsh aggradation trend only approximates the trend of HHW increase. The eustatic sea-level fluctuations are estimated to have a range of at least 0.8 m.

Bay Journal - Article: Salt Marsh Splendor

In the Chesapeake Bay, salt marshes are found between the salty, wave-swept waters of the Bay and the calmer, fresher waters inland. These important areas serve as a buffer during storms by bearing the brunt of the waves and storing floodwaters. The marsh's sediments can store dissolved ocean ...

Salt marsh - Wikipedia

A salt marsh or saltmarsh, also known as a coastal salt marsh or a tidal marsh, is a coastal ecosystem in the upper coastal intertidal zone between land and open saltwater or brackish water that is regularly flooded by the tides. It is dominated by dense stands of salt-tolerant plants such as herbs, grasses, or low shrubs. These plants are terrestrial in origin and are essential to the ...

The global extent of pan, brackish, and saline wetlands is approximately 435 000 km 2, or 0.3% of the total surface area and 5% of total wetland area.In USA, the 48 conterminous states have about 1.7 Mha of salt marshes, out of a total of 42 Mha of wetlands.

The role of coastal ecotones: a case study of the salt ...

In other salt marsh ecosystems, such as those along the east and gulf coasts of N. America, the term high salt marsh is often used for a broader zone, from the marsh plain down to the MHW mark (Bertness & Ellison 1987), and its upland border is probably more comparable with the ecotone studied here.

Simple Metrics Predict Salt‐Marsh Sediment Fluxes ...

The growth (or decay) of salt marshes depends on suspended‐sediment flux into and out of the marsh. Suspended‐sediment concentration (SSC) is a key element of the flux, and SSC‐based metrics reflect the long‐term sediment‐flux trajectories of a variety of salt marshes.

Restoration of salt‐marsh vegetation in relation to site ...

The prospect of salt‐marsh restoration after de‐embankment is good, with target species establishing spontaneously and vegetation succession taking place. Because most salt‐marsh species are dispersed over short distances, it is important that a well‐developed salt marsh is adjacent to the restoration site.
