Comments"Emergent vegetation at this site was dominated by the native cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) and submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) dominated by the introduced Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum), both of which are common within brackish marsh areas in Louisiana (Visser et al. 1998, Visser et al. 2000, Visser et al 2012)."
