Abstract

Distribution of forest, successional field, salt marsh, and lawn communities are presented in a map. Forest vegetation was divided into valley, slope, north-facing, and successional. Since 1940, 6 salt marshes have grown, dominated by Spartina alterniflora and Iva frutescens. Natural soils are acid while fill soil pH is near neutral; both are low in K, P, and nitrates. High densities of non-native ground cover species and elevated soil nutrient values in soil samples were evidence of previous cultivation in the successional field community. -from Author
