Forested Wetland Communities as Indicators of Tidal Influence along the Apalachicola River, Florida, USA

  title={Forested Wetland Communities as Indicators of Tidal Influence along the Apalachicola River, Florida, USA},
  author={Christopher J. Anderson and B. Graeme Lockaby},
On coastal rivers, tidal freshwater forested wetlands occur at the upriver extent of tidal influence. How far upriver is uncertain, because tidal conditions gradually diminish and it is unknown how forest species and edaphic conditions shift in response. Forested wetlands along the lower Apalachicola River were evaluated for the influence of tidal hydrology on community composition, structure, and soil conditions. A total of 37 forest plots were established along a tidal gradient and classified… CONTINUE READING
