The Salt-Marsh Ecosystem: A Synthesis

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 38)


We began in Chapter 1 with an introduction to the salt marsh as an ecological system and progressively dissected that system into component parts and processes, examining interactions, impacts, and controls. We started to put the parts together again when discussing the carbon-flow model. We complete the process of unification in this final chapter, concentrating in particular on the mechanisms by which salt marshes are connected to the larger systems abutting and affecting them—the land and its rivers on the one side, and the sea on the other.
