Monitoring the disturbance across salinity experiment

The disturbance across salinity experiment consists of about 80 pairs of plots (control and disturbed) distributed across the salinity gradient of the coastal wetlands to include four vegetation types (Sarcocornia, Spartina, Juncus, Zizaniopsis). We are now monitoring the early phases of recovery. Depending on vegetation type, we expect full recovery to take between one year and ten years.
