A paper co-authored by Adam Constantin, Whitney Broussard, and Julia Cherry was released this week in Southeastern Naturalist. The study, led by Adam Constantin as part of his thesis research, documented the distribution of dominant tidal marsh plant species along an elevation gradient and in response to salinity at the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.

Check out the latest paper from the Wetland Ecology Lab, which was co-authored by Anna Braswell, Chris May, and Julia Cherry. It was released online this week in Wetlands Ecology and Management. The paper describes spatially-dependent patterns of sediment accretion and plant recovery following hurricane and fire disturbances in a Juncus roemerianus-dominated tidal marsh in coastal Mississippi.
