Aerial production, mortality, and mineral accumulation-export dynamics in Spartina alterniflora and Juncus roemerianus plant stands in a Georgia salt marsh



Aerial production, mortality, and mineral accumulation-export dynamics in Spartina alterniflora and Juncus roemerianus plant stands in a Georgia salt marsh



Ecology 61(2): 303-312



Biomass and disappearance of dead material were measured in stands of tall creekbank Spartina alterniflora, short high marsh S. alterniflora and Juncus roemerianus in Georgia, USA at 4-wk intervals for 1 yr and at 8-wk intervals for a 2nd yr. Growth and mortality were calculated from these data. Net primary production estimates, using changes in biomass only, ranged from 10 to 75% lower than estimates which included the disappearance of dead material.
