Effects of increased inundation and wrack deposition on a high salt marsh plant community.
For the summer sampling, results from a 2-source mixing model indicated that pelagic basal food sources (i.e., FPOM) contributed more to the food web of the resident community on the sampled oyster reefs than the nonpelagic sources (i.e., marsh plant) regardless of harvest treatment (all values of source fractions of FPOM were >0.50; Table 3).

Recovery from small-scale anthropogenic disturbances by northern California salt marsh plant assemblages.
Although the rice-hull-burning technology used at the Floyd Myers Marsh plant has proven itself in the Sacramento Valley, it may not be adaptable to other rice-growing regions of the world, according to Oxford Energy spokesman Bob Graulich.
Birds also benefit from increased plant cover in marshes; for example, in southern California the state-listed endangered Belding's Savannah Sparrow (Passerculus sandwichensis beldingi) uses several marsh plant species for nesting habitat (Powell, 1993).
