Inundation Frequency Determines the Post-Pioneer Successional Pathway in a Newly Created Salt Marsh

Abstract

The effect of inundation frequency on plant community composition, species turnover, total and growth form cover, species richness, and abundance of individual species was investigated in a newly created salt marsh (Belgium) with a gradient of inundation frequencies from 0.01% to 100%. Cover of all plant species was estimated in 119 permanent 2 × 2 m plots… (More)
