Abstract: Salt marsh plants are effective in stabilizing eroding shorelines in many sheltered coastal areas . Exceptional results have been achieved in a variety of intertidal environments at a fraction of the cost required for comparable structural protection. Techniques are available for the efficient propagation of several marsh plants for use in shore stabilization. This report provides a method for determining site suitability, establishing guidelines for planting marshes to control erosion, and compares the costs of vegetation to structural methods of erosion control.
