Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Russian peat borer was used to collect one sediment core each in (A) mangroves, (B) marsh, and (C) transition between marsh and mangroves (total of 3 cores). Small subsamples of each sediment core were taken from 3-5cm below the surface for DNA extraction. Sediment temperature, pore water salinity, and sediment pH data were collected for each core.
