Climate Variability Structures Plant Community Dynamics in Mediterranean Restored and Reference Tidal Wetlands

  title={Climate Variability Structures Plant Community Dynamics in Mediterranean Restored and Reference Tidal Wetlands},
  author={Dylan E. Chapple and Phyllis Faber and Katharine Nash Suding and Adina M. Merenlender},
In Mediterranean regions and other areas with variable climates, interannual weather variability may impact ecosystem dynamics, and by extension ecological restoration projects. Conditions at reference sites, which are often used to evaluate restoration projects, may also be influenced by weather variability, confounding interpretations of restoration outcomes. To better understand the influence of weather variability on plant community dynamics, we explore change in a vegetation dataset… CONTINUE READING
