DescriptionThe relationship among net primary productivity (NPP), hydroperiod, and fertility in forested wetlands is poorly understood (Burke and others 1999), particularly with respect to belowground NPP (Megonigal and others 1997). Although some researchers have studied aboveground and belowground primary production in depressional, forested wetland systems, e.g., Day and Megonigal(1993), there are no published studies of aboveground and belowground NPP in riverine systems in the Southeastern United States.
