Salinity as a constraint on growth of oligohaline marsh macrophytes. II. Salt pulses and recovery potential

The ability of common oligohaline marsh macrophytes of the northern Gulf of Mexico coast to recover from pulses of increased salinity was investigated in a greenhouse experiment with Eleocharis palustris, Panicum hemitomon, Sagittaria lancifolia, and Scirpus americanus monocultures. Components of salinity pulses applied were final salinity reached...

The effects of global climate change on seagrasses

The increasing rate of global climate change seen in this century, and predicted to accelerate into the next, will significantly impact the Earth's oceans. In this review, we examine previously published seagrass research through a lens of global climate change in order to consider the potential effects on the world's seagrasses. A primary effect...

Atlantic white cedar plantings in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, and the Bogue Chitto National Wildlife Refuge, Mississippi

Populations of Atlantic white cedar (Chamaecyparis thyoides (L.) B.S.P.) growing at the extreme western range of the species are in danger of being lost, and information on the ecology of these populations is limited. Seeds and seedlings ("wildlings") were collected near Vancleave, MS. The wildlings were transplanted to bay-head sites on Bogue...

USGS develops a drainage-based system to track ANS introductions

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) Program has tracked the distribution of introduced species for more than 20 years. This effort began with foreign fishes in Florida and later expanded to include aquatic nuisance species nationwide. The tracking database contains locational and temporal data for introductions...
