Article
Full-text available
Seasonally saturated wetlands are hydrologically dynamic ecosystems that provide various ecosystem services; however, their variable hydrologic conditions may promote greenhouse gas emissions. The extent to which wetlands produce and emit greenhouse gases is intimately tied to the underlying microbial community. We established a linear transect spa...
Article
Wetland restoration efforts aim to enhance the structure and function of degraded and damaged wetlands. Unfortunately, restoration techniques often alter a site's soil habitat and plant community structure, which affect the activity and composition of microbial communities. Microbial community structure and activity, as a function of soil texture a...
Article
One of the many goals of wetland restoration is to promote the long-term storage of carbon (C) in the terrestrial biosphere. Unfortunately, soil C reservoirs in restored wetlands are slow to accumulate even after hydrology and plant communities are reestablished. Oftentimes wetland restoration changes the soil matrix and thus can dramatically alter...
Article
Full-text available
Restored wetland soils differ significantly in physical and chemical properties from their natural counterparts even when plant community composition is similar, but effects of restoration on microbial community composition and function are not well understood. Here we investigate plant-microbe relationships in restored and natural tidal freshwater...
Article
Full-text available
Gunnera plants have the unique ability to form endosymbioses with N(2)-fixing cyanobacteria, primarily Nostoc. Cyanobacteria enter Gunnera through transiently active mucilage-secreting glands on stems. We took advantage of the nitrogen (N)-limitation-induced gland development in Gunnera manicata to identify factors that may enable plant tissue to a...
Conference Paper
Background/Question/Methods Wetlands are often regarded as expendable ecosystems; however, the functional biology of these habitats is difficult to mimic and restore. Of particular importance in restoration efforts is a greater appreciation of the complex relationship that exists between wetland hydrology (e.g., soil saturation and redox), vegetat...
