One year after tilling, little recovery in DRAGNet

The GCE is participating in DRAGNet, a global, distributed experiment looking at recovery from disturbance. GA salt marshes are strongly affected by the DRAGNet disturbance (roto-tilling) and show very little recovery after one year. The plots will be disturbed three years in a row, after which we'll follow recovery. To date, the experiment has been curated by excellent undergraduate Zahrria Johnson from the University of Houston.
