Students Train In Wetland Science Field Techniques

Ecology professor Allison Fitzgerald from New Jersey City University recently lead an ecology class to a wetland site in the Meadowlands where students were introduced to wetland science field techniques. Using tape measurements and 1 meter square plots students measured plant assemblages and plant densities across an elevation gradient. Students found that in tidal coastal wetlands terrain elevation is an important factor determining plant species composition.
