Sagittaria biomass partitioning relative to salinity, hydrologic regime, and substrate type: Implications for plant distribution patterns in Coastal Louisiana, United States

Author(s): S. B. Martin, G. P. Shaffer

Year: 2005

Journal: Journal of Coastal Research
Volume: 21
Issue: 1
Pages: 167-174

Article Topic(s): Disturbance, Nutrients, Water
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse, Wetland

Species Referenced: Sagittaria latifolia (Broadleaf arrowhead),

Abstract

Investigates the effects of salinity, hydrologic regime, and substrate conditions on the growth of Sagittaria latifolia, S. lancifolia, and S. platyphylla in the greenhouse. Only S. lancifolia was able to tolerate salinity. The authors conclude that increasing salinity on Louisiana's coastline may explain why S. lancifolia is increasing in abundance while the other two species are decreasing in abundance.
