Shanze’s paper makes cover of Ecosphere

Shanze Li and Steve Pennings recently published a paper on how the timing of wrack disturbance determines its effects on Spartina alterniflora and on stem-boring herbivores of Spartina. Plants completely recover from disturbance early in the season in terms of growth, and early disturbance actually stimulated flowering. Plants did not recover from disturbance later in the season, and flowering was suppressed. Plants disturbed late in the season also had a low frequency of stem-boring herbivores. The paper was featured on the cover of the journal Ecosphere, and is open access:
