Estimating Net Primary Production of Salt Marsh Macrophytes
Salt marshes dominate the intertidal zone in temperate latitudes and present some unique features pertaining to measurement of primary production. Several destructive harvest and non-destructive methods for quantifying salt marsh production are described. Allometric methods that account for stem turnover are the recommended approach. Field and laboratory procedures illustrating the recommended protocol are detailed using examples from LTER sites.
