Ship Wreck Microbes

Shipwreck microbes. Nice article on how the break down of wood , cellulose and other material provides a rich ground of nutrient for microbes to thrive. Microbes being the basis of the lifecycle of a tidal marsh and how wrecks from around 1900 facilitate the rich, vibrant, dynamic ecosystems. How this factors into the Rancocas Creek tide water marshes and the Rancocas Creek Watershed is an area of science and exploration that is being “dissected” through various means. Locating and uncovering the heritage of the vessels found along the Rancocas is a issue being worked up. The bio-survey is another of those areas. Likewise the black rail survey.
