Sporobolus alterniflorus (Spartina alterniflora) Poster

This educational poster shows the main facts and distribution of Sporobolus alterniflorus (formerly known as Spartina alterniflora), the dominant plant in southeastern salt marshes. S. alterniflorus can be seen as the anchor – without this foundational plant, the salt marsh ecosystem would not be able to establish itself along our coastline.
