Abstract: The relationship between height and mass (allometry) was measured for plants
collected from Georgia Coastal Ecosystems sampling sites 1-10 in October 2002.
Shoots or leaves (Juncus) were collected adjacent to permanent plots in each
marsh zone by clipping at the soil surface. Dead leaves were removed from
shoots. Height, flowering status (Spartina species only), number of leaves
(Spartina species ... View entire text
