Salt marsh faunas are constrained by specific habitat requirements for marsh elevation relative to sea level and tidal range. As sea level rises, changes in relative elevation of the marsh plain will have differing impacts on the availability of habitat for marsh obligate species. The Wetland Accretion Rate Model for EcosystemResilience (WARMER) is a 1-Dmodel of elevation that incorporates both biological and physical processes of vertical marsh accretion. Here, we use WARMER to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
