Methods: 

Line intercept method as described in Brower, J., J. Zar, and C. von Ende (1990) Field and Laboratory for General Ecology. Wm. C. Brown.

Transects typically start at edge of marsh creek and run perpendicular to upland. Lengths of individual transects vary from 35-150 m depending on the shape of the marsh sites and the number of transect line differed for the four sites. The presence of species within each one meter interval along the transect line was recorded. Absolute and % frequencies can then be calculated.
