Role of Plant Pathogens in Sudden Wetland Dieback in Connecticut and Massachusetts

PI: Frank Caruso, Univ. of Massachusetts - Amherst

Project Number:2008-R/RC-110-REG

Start Date:2008-02-01End Date:2010-01-31

Proposal Summary

The researchers are surveying tidal wetlands on Cape Cod to learn what pathogens are contributing to the Sudden Wetland Dieback and how stress affects this phenomenon. This improved understanding of Sudden Wetland Dieback will help in the design of remediation and restoration efforts.
