Dominated by smooth cordgrass
(Spartina alternifiora) and black needlerush (Juncus roemerianus), GOM salt marshes also export large amounts of secondary production, including that of ecologically and economically important shrimp species, to the offshore ecosystem (Boesch & Turner 1984, Zimmerman et al.

Joshi R, Ramanarao MV, Baisakh N (2013) Arabidopsis plants constitutively overexpressing a myo-inositol 1 phosphate synthase gene (SaINOl) from the halophyte smooth cordgrass

The marsh restoration will be constructed by hydraulically dredging bay bottom sediments from designated borrow areas and optional access channels, then pumping the sediments into designated restoration areas to specified elevations determined suitable for the planting and establishment of smooth cordgrass

Similarly, use of transplants, sod, and small plugs of wetland soil, have been effective in introducing a number of wetland species, including Spartina foliosa, California cordgrass
, to sites (Tmka 1998, Zedler 2001, Mitsch and Gosselink 2010).

A row of rooms and a small office with a crisp US flag fluttering from an eave faced a narrow, too-steep beach, half of it dirt riddled with sea oats, cordgrass
and beach morning glory, half sand.
