New paper from Hongyu

Congratulations to Hongyu Guo and coauthors, whose paper on how climate mediates interactions between mangroves and salt marsh vegetation has just been published online in Global Change Biology.

Guo, H., Y. Zhang, Z. Lan and S. C. Pennings. 2013. Biotic interactions mediate the expansion of black mangrove (Avicennia germinans) into salt marshes under climate change. Global Change Biology. DOI: 10.1111/gcb.12221.

Mangroves (black mangrove Avicennia germinans) are currently expanding their range on the Texas Coast, likely due to warmer winters, and projections from climate models suggest that much of the Gulf Coast could switch from salt marsh to mangrove over the coming century.  Hongyu’s paper helps us understand the mechanisms underlying this expansion.

UPDATE (8/7/2013): This paper is now available with full citation information. GCB 19, 2765–2774.
