Abstract

Poster presented during the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium Bays and Bayous Symposium 2012 on the decline of emergent wetlands in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Throughout the past century, emergent wetlands have been declining across the Gulf of Mexico. Emergent wetland ecosystems provide many resources, including plant and wildlife habitat, commercial and recreational economic activity, water quality, and natural barriers against storms. As emergent wetland losses increase, so does the need for information on the causes and effects of this loss.
