Project Personnel:

Project number: 2008-R/RC-110-REG
Strategic Focus Area: Healthy Coastal Ecosystems

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.
