The Transport and Dispersion of Rafting Vegetation in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

Description / purpose

The purpose of this project is focused on developing a thorough, mechanistic understanding of how rafting vegetation, such as hyacinths or egeria, is transported in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This research will be useful for future invasions, particularly because rafts of vegetation are known to be important transport mechanisms for many marine species.
