Table S1. Compiled estimates of Spartina alterniflora annual productivity, as measured by maximum standing live biomass. Position in Marsh heading refers to the elevation or vegetation characteristics of the portion of the marsh sampled. Middle and high elevation marshes assumed to be dominated by short form S. alterniflora rather than its tall form. We also assume that where reported as a 'marsh average,' the sampled vegetation is relatively homogenous and dominated by inland marsh far from edges of tidal creeks. We have specified 'homogenous average' where this assumption can be confirmed. The source heading denotes whether the estimate was obtained directly from text or a table, interpreted from a figure, or obtained directly from the Turner, 1976 synthesis. An asterisk denotes that the productivity estimate represents an average of at least 2 years of data collection. Shading denotes locations of measurements that were averaged together in Figure 1b.
