Abstract

Coastal marsh loss in Louisiana is attributed to plane dieback caused by processes that stress vegetation, and a common landscape pattern is broken marsh that expands at the expense of suurrounding unbroken marsh. This paper describes an intensive study to test the hypothesis that broken marsh vegetation is more stressed than unbroken marsh vegetation at Marsh Island, and to identify factors limiting vegetation
