Abstract

My presentation demonstrates the preliminary analyses of my research from the summer of 2019 in Munuscong marsh on the effects of the invasive cattail Typha x glauca on wetland algal populations. Preliminary findings suggest that the shading caused by the dense stands these invaders form inhibits algal growth and chlorophyll-a production.

The effects of Typha x glauca on Great Lakes coastal wetland algal populations

My presentation demonstrates the preliminary analyses of my research from the summer of 2019 in Munuscong marsh on the effects of the invasive cattail Typha x glauca on wetland algal populations. Preliminary findings suggest that the shading caused by the dense stands these invaders form inhibits algal growth and chlorophyll-a production.
