Restored saltmarshes have low beta diversity due to limited topographic variation, but this can be countered by management

Peter Lawrence, Martin Sullivan & Hannah Mossman
1. Spatial heterogeneity of species (beta diversity) is an important attribute of ecological communities, but is less frequently considered when assessing restoration success than other aspects of diversity (gamma and alpha). Differences in beta diversity between restored and natural sites may arise due to differences in environmental heterogeneity. 2. We use a nested sampling design to survey plant communities and environmental conditions (elevation, redox potential and metrics of topography) on four pairs of restored and...
