An annotated bibliography of seagrasses with emphasis on planting and propagation techniques by Daniel B Knight( )

7 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography includes abstracts on 145 historic and recently published research reports on seagrasses, with emphasis on Halodule, Ruppia, Thalassia and Zostera. The compilation of reports emphasizes planting and propagation techniques for seagrasses and important environmental parameters for successful transplanting. The bibliography is published to aid coastal engineers and scientists in planning, designing, and transplanting seagrasses to rehabilitate areas affected by coastal engineering projects and to stabilize substrates adjacent to navigation channels.

Shore stabilization with salt marsh vegetation by Paul L Knutson( Book )

6 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is published to provide engineers and scientists with guidelines on using coastal marsh vegetation as a shore erosion control measure in coastal regions of the United States. This erosion control alternatives is suitable for relatively sheltered shorelines such as those found on bays, sounds, and estuaries. For various reasons this alternative has not been found to be effective in the Great Lakes, Alaska, or Hawaii. Criteria are provided on (1) determining site suitability, (2) selecting plant materials, (3) planting procedures and specifications, (4) estimating project costs, and (5) assessing impact
Long-term monitoring of eleven Corps of Engineers habitat development field sites built of dredged material, 1974-1987 by Mary Collins Landin( Book )

Guidelines for vegetative erosion control on wave-impacted coastal dredged material sites by Paul L Knutson( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides guidelines for the evaluation of vegetative stabilization alternatives for dredged material disposal areas using salt marsh wetland plants. The guidelines provide a methodology for classifying dredged material shorelines with respect to wave energy (low, moderate, or high energy sites) and specify a vegetative stabilization strategy (standard planting techniques, root-anchored techniques, or wave protection structures) for each energy regime. Such guidelines provide dredged material planners and operations personnel the means to use dredged material for combined beneficial uses of wetlands creation, habitat development, and erosion control. The report also presents two case studies of salt marsh creation on dredged material sites located in North Carolina along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and in Texas along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway near Galveston. These studies provide guidelines for creating salt marsh on moderate- to high-energy sites exposed to both ship and wind generated waves
Shore erosion control with salt marsh vegetation by Paul L Knutson( Book )

7 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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, establishes guidelines for planting marshes to control erosion, and compares the costs of vegetation to structural methods of erosion control.

Bank erosion control with vegetation, San Francisco Bay, California by Curtis L Newcombe( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 1975 to 1978, an intertidal shoreline stabilization study was conducted to determine biological means of controlling erosion. California cordgrass (Spartina foliosa Trin.) and mussels (Ischadium demissum Dillwyn) were used in San Pablo Bay and South San Francisco Bay, California. The study indicated that establishing cordgrass with seeds is not a practical method for controlling erosion. Cordgrass plugs are more useful than sprigs while the cordgrass-mussel plugs, termed bioconstructs, are the most tolerant to erosion by waves. The cordgrass-mussel community bioconstructs survived exceptionally well during the 13-month observations at Alameda Creek, a high-energy site. Once established, they are highly resistant to waves, will survive transplanting, and can be established in an area with up to a 7-kilometer fetch without wave-stilling devices. The biomass of the aerial parts of 23 natural California cordgrass marshes averaged 1,062 grams per square meter. This value is similar to those previously reported for smooth cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora) on the Atlantic coast. (Author)
Planting guidelines for marsh development and bank stabilization by Paul L Knutson( Book )

9 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marsh plants are effective in stabilizing eroding banks 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 bank stabilization. This report provides guidelines for (a) selecting plants and planting methods, (b) determining seed application rate and plant spacing, (c) determining fertilization requirements, and (d) estimating labor for planting on a project-by-project basis.

Planting guidelines for dune creation and stabilization by Paul L Knutson( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experimental dune restoration and stabilization, Nauset Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts by Paul L Knutson( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planting guidelines for dune creation and stabilization by Paul L Knutson( Book )

8 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beach grasses have been used successfully in many coastal projects to form and stabilize dune systems as a natural barrier to the inland penetration of waves and storm surges. Techniques are available for the efficient propagation of beach grass for this purpose. This report provides guidelines for (a) selecting plants and planting methods; (b) obtaining plants; (c) storing, planting, and maintaining plants; and (d) estimating labor requirements for planting projects.

Marsh plants are effective in stabilizing eroding banks in 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 bank stabilization. This paper provides design criteria for (1) determining site suitability, (2) selecting plant materials and planting methods and (3) estimating labor requirements on a project by project basis.

Experimental Dune Restoration and Stabilization, Nauset Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts by Paul L Knutson( )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1970, experimental plots were established on a baymouth bar at Nauset Harbor on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. On the bar both sand fences and American beachgrass (Ammophila breviligulata) were tested as alternative techniques for creating and stabilizing dunes. Elevational profiles were made periodically in the test plots from April 1970 to November 1977. The study concluded that sand fences initially capture sand more rapidly than newly planted beachgrass. Once established, however, beachgrass plantings trap sand at a rate equivalent to multiple lifts of sand fence. Using either sand fence or beachgrass, a dune growth rate of more than 11 cubic meters per linear meter of beach per year was sustained. Crest elevation increased 0.25 meter per year. (Author)
