Summary

Wetland Patch Size This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the estuarine ecosystem. It is an index based on the size of estuarine patches.

Other species are expected to be limited based on home range size. In addition, wave attenuation is increased with wetland area (Shepard et al. 2011). Over time, a decrease in patch size will correspond to marsh degradation [...]
