The delta of the Paraná River in Argentina forms islands as it progrades into the Rio de la Plata estuary. In order to understand plant succession patterns, we analyzed cover-abundance and soil data along transects across topographic gradients of three islands. Using multivariate classification (TWINSPAN) and ordination (DCA and CCA), we developed a conceptual model of plant succession for these islands. The general pattern is that the bulrush, Schoenoplectus californicus, first colonizes bars… CONTINUE READING
