Differences in standing live and dead crops in estuarine marshes on Vancouver Island

Differences in standing live and dead crops in estuarine marshes on Vancouver Island

Canadian Journal of Botany 64(2): 322-325

There was marked variation in the dynamics of the standing crops of tidal marshes on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Carex lyngbyei Hornem, stands did not have standing dead crops for the final 5 months of the 7-month study, though Carex lyngbyei stands produced the most matter (i.e., a peak standing live crop of 1450 g dry matter m-2). In a Salicornia virginica L. stand, the standing dead crop exceeded the standing live crop throughout the study and the stand had the greatest amount of dead matter with a peak standing dead crop of 1470 g dry matter m-2. This suggested that vascular plant matter produced in the Carex lyngbyei stands was more likely to enter the detrital food web of an estuary than was matter produced in the Salicornia virginica stand.
