Saltmarsh Dieback:
That narrow ribbon of marsh between land and sea is dying. What is killing it is still not fully known. The stress of coastal development, pollution, sea level rise, warming trends and constricted growing area may develop stress related pathogens which rot the marsh grass roots and allow for the hollowing out of the marsh grass roots into coral like forms.
