Re-establishment of Intertidal Vegetation

A b s t r a c t: The damage from the 1991 Gulf War oil spill on the intertidal vegetation was re-evaluated. Due to delayed mortality a reliable assessment of vegetation damage can finally be made. Initial propagation trials with mangroves were successful and a propagation and planting technique suitable for future mangrove restoration was developed.
