Restoration Response of Relict Broadleaf Marshes to Increased Water Depths

Evaluates effects of restored water depth regimes on broadleaf marsh communities along the Kissimmee River in central Florida. Increasing the water depth increased the cover of signature broadleaf species Sagittaria lancifolia and Pontederia cordata in some cases. However, invasive species seemed to prevent the increase of these signature species in other areas.
