A new paper out of the Cherry and Mortazavi labs has been published in Restoration Ecology. In it, Tatariw et al. compared rates of denitrification and dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium (DNRA) between a natural and constructed tidal marsh. In both marshes, denitrification and DNRA rates were greatest in the upper 10 cm of marsh sediment and generally declined with increasing depth. They also found that rates were greater in the natural marsh than the constructed marsh, suggesting impartial recovery of ecosystem function after 32 years.
