Pennings lab setting up disturbance-salinity experiment

The Pennings lab is on Sapelo setting up the disturbance-salinity experiment. A standardized disturbance (the tarp kills the plants) across a gradient of salinity within and among four plant species (Sarcocornia, Spartina, Juncus, Zizaniopsis). Excited to get this rolling!
