New offering: Nearshore restoration species

December 1, 2011

We now offer keystone species for “nearshore” restoration sites – the vegetated zones closest to the beach. Recent research has revealed the critical habitat functions of these little-studied ecosystems. American dunegrass (Elymus mollis) forms the backbone of most nearshore plant communities, which may also include tufted hairgrass (Deschampsia cespitosa), Lyngbye’s sedge (Carex lyngbyei) and seacoast bulrush (Schoenoplectus maritumus). We plan to expand out offerings for this fascinating community in the coming years.
