Picture of recruitment sampling at the GCE-LTER site. PVC pipes are used to sample barnacles, caged canisters filled with dead oyster shells (above right) to samples crabs and oysters, and caged, potted Spartina plants to sample snails. Inset: some of the dominant organisms that are monitored: littorine snails, crabs and acorn barnacles. Credit: Pictures provided by James Nifong, Christine Holdredge and Brian Silliman
