Coexistence of Typha Angustifolia and Impatiens Capensis in a tidal freshwater marsh

Abstract

Several salt marsh plant species can oxygenate soils through their aerenchymous tissue and thereby facilitate the growth of neighboring species. Such positive interactions remain poorly understood for tidal freshwater marshes, yet may explain why species adverse to submerged roots are able to thrive in these marshes. Field observations showed a positive… (More)
