Abstract

The study area is the Skallingen salt marsh in Jutland. The AA. specifically aim to identify the domain of scale over which vegetation pattern and process are detected on a salt marsh. Such identification will be achieved by 1) examining the species-area relationship, a measure of species diversity as a function of scale and 2) quantifying spatial point pattern and spatial texture in the distribution of plant across small spatial scales. This study makes a quantitative contribution to the body of emerging novel theory that emphasizes scale-dependent complexity in salt marsh ecosystems
