Effects of the Water-Sediment Regulation Scheme on the Expansion of Spartina alterniflora at the Yellow River Estuary, China
In recent decades, the invasion of saltmarsh plant Spartina alterniflora (S. alterniflora) over a large part of coastal wetlands in China, including the Yellow River Estuary (YRE) as a regional
How Does Spartina alterniflora Invade in Salt Marsh in Relation to Tidal Channel Networks? Patterns and Processes
The results implicated that early control of S. alterniflora invasion should pay close attention to higher-order tidal channels as the main pathway, and a strong association with tidal channel networks.
Tidal and Meteorological Influences on the Growth of Invasive Spartina alterniflora: Evidence from UAV Remote Sensing
This is the first spatially explicit quantitative study to examine the influences of tidal and meteorological regimes on both spatial heterogeneity (over the intertidal zone) and temporal variation (intraand inter-annual) of S. alterniflora at both patch and landscape scales.
The size and distribution of tidal creeks affects salt marsh restoration.
Seasonal soil-plant nitrogen dynamics of a cordgrass salt marsh in response to coastal embankments in Eastern China
The effects of coastal embankments on nitrogen (N) cycling in the Spartina alterniflora salt marsh have been extensively reported. However, it remains unclear effects of the embankment on the sizes
Pure, shared, and coupling effects of climate change and sea level rise on the future distribution of Spartina alterniflora along the Chinese coast
Investigating interactions among variables and identifying the impacts of climate change, sea level rise, and their interactions on the distribution of Spartina alterniflora will provide scientific references for assessing the risk of similar coastal species.


Environment-ecosystem dynamic processes of Spartina alterniflora salt-marshes along the eastern China coastlines
Spartina alterniflora is ecologically important in its original habitat; however, it has caused controversy since it was introduction into China (now it has been spreading rapidly on the Jiangsu,

In order to evaluate the impact of artificially introduced cord grasses on coastal wetland ecosystem of Jiangsu Province, eastern China, a transection on the upper intertidal zone, 950 m long
The relationship of smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) to tidal datums: A review
An analysis of data relatingSpartina alterniflora Loisel. to tidal elevations along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts demonstrated that although this species is primarily confined to the intertidal zone,
Interactions between mangroves and exotic Spartina in an anthropogenically disturbed estuary in southern China.
Natural vegetation patterns and experimental results suggest that, without intervention, S. alterniflora could gradually replace these mangroves in mid-salinity regions of Chinese estuaries.
On the Relationship Between Sea Level and Spartina alterniflora Production
A positive relationship between interannual sea level and plant growth is thought to stabilize many coastal landforms responding to accelerating rates of sea level rise. Numerical models of delta
