Abstract

The spread of Spartina on a tidal water divide has been followed in subsequent aerial photos. Spartina first appeared in the area in 1964, it spread rapidly to 1976. From 1976 to 1988 a significant die-back is observed. This die-back was more than recovered in 1995. The die-back period had a number of cold winters, which points to the role of ice in the Spartina die-back. In comparison with the local tidal range, possible future planting of Spartina in salt marsh management strategies should take place at levels, which are inundated no more than 5 hours per tidal cycle
