iii COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP TITLE: The influence of hydrogeomorphology, soil redox conditions, and salinity on the spatial zoning of iv ABSTRACT The influence of hydrogeomorphology, soil redox conditions, and salinity on the spatial Scotts Creek Marsh (SCM) is a small coastal wetland ecosystem in Davenport, CA. The vegetation of SCM is dominated by three halophytic zones comprised of saltgrass, salt rush, cattails. The objectives of the study were (i) to investigate the variables that influence…

FACTORS INFLUENCING VASCULAR PLANT ZONATION IN NORTH CAROLINA SALTMARSHES
Abstract : This study was initiated with the objectives of describing the vegetation of North Carolina saltmarshes, the composition of saltmarsh communities, and the environmental conditions under
SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL DYNAMICS OF MYCORRHIZAS IN JAUMEA CARNOSA, A TIDAL SALTMARSH HALOPHYTE
TLDR
The tidal deposition of nitrogen-rich (and possibly spore-bearing) sediments, the presence of faunal activity in channel walls, and improved soil aeration associated with tidal inundation and retreat are among the proposed explanations for mycorrhizal abundance in this location of the Walker Creek marsh.
SEASONAL PATTERNS AND PLANT‐MEDIATED CONTROLS OF SUBSURFACE WETLAND BIOGEOCHEMISTRY
TLDR
It is suggested that variations in microbial metabolic pathways were regulated by physiochemical factors at the brackish site and plant activity at the freshwater site, and changes in rates of Fe(III) reduction and methanogenesis were directly affected by plant- mediated processes.
