  • a Homogeneous and statistically significant subsets are displayed. Values presented are based on observed means. Critical values are not monotonic for these data. Substitutions have been made to ensure monotonicity; the numbers of type 1 errors are therefore smaller. Alpha = 0.05. “High,” “ebb,” “low,” and “flood” represent creek water samples taken during those tidal stages. “Tall,” “Short,” and “Juncus” represent locations within the marsh landscape, specifically, in the tall-form-Spartina alterniflora, short-form-Spartina alterniflora, and Juncus roemarianus zones, respectively. BW, infaunal burrow water; PW, interstitial pore water.
