  • a Carbon sources are defined as carbohydrates (C), carboxylic acids (CA), amino acids (AA), and remaining carbon sources (R). Isolates are identified in a sample date code (e.g., the first sampling in May 2007 is 05071), followed by location (in a creek at high tide [H], ebb tide [E], low tide [L], or flood tide [F]; in a burrow in tall Spartina [TB], short Spartina [SB], and Juncus [JB]; and in pore water in tall Spartina [TP], short Spartina [SP], and Juncus [JP]) and isolate number.
