Soils of Marshes in the Apalachicola, Florida Estuary1

  1. C. L. Coultas2

Abstract

Abstract

The marshes of the Apalachicola, Florida estuary were traversed and the principal soils were described, sampled, and characterized. Cladium jamaicense (sawgrass) was the predominant plant of this ecosystem, but Juncus roemerianus (needlerush) was also common. Sulfihemists predominated in the delta of the Apalachicola River. In the eastern portion of the estuary, Sulfaquents and Fluvaquents were common. Sulfihemists were not saline, but some Sulfaquents and Fluvaquents were saline-alkaline. Montmorillonite was the predominant clay-sized mineral and mica was common in the sand fraction.
