Abstract:

A study of marsh development on confined dredged material substrate in an abandoned salt pond in South San Francisco Bay demonstrated that a California cordgrass Spartina foliosa marsh can be established within 2 years. For successful marsh development, proper elevations and tidal flow must be provided. For the San Francisco Bay area, sprigs should be planted in early spring on low wave energy sites and at 0.5- to 1.0-m intervals within the lower two-thirds of the intertidal range. Author
