Salt marsh community ecology

Issues of Interest:
Dead marsh.

Current Projects and Activities:
I am one of the PIs on the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER program. I study plant community ecology and plant-herbivore interactions in coastal wetlands

The GCE-LTER has sites in the Altamaha, Doboy and Sapelo sounds. My plant-herbivore work involves a variety of sites in New England (CT, RI, MA, ME) and in the Southeast (SC, GA and FL).
