Species Referenced: Iva frutescens (Jesuit's bark),
AbstractEvaluates the positive interaction between Juncus gerardi and Iva frutescens in a New England salt marsh. Iva frutescens benefits from the presence of J. gerardi but the mechanisms underlying this are unknown. Without J. gerardi, I. frutescens shows signs of stress from salinity and waterlogging.
