Spartina anglica is a vigorous exotic perennial salt marsh grass typically inhabiting the upper
intertidal zone of temperate estuaries. Following its introduction into the Tamar Estuary, Tasmania,
patterns of sediment deposition and erosion have been significantly altered. This paper presents the
background to an interdisciplinary approach used to determine the potential impacts of the wide
scale eradication of S. anglica, from what is now Australia's largest infestation. Analysis of these
interdisciplinary lines of inquiry have provided a greater understanding of the biogeomorphological
responses to restoration attempts within intertidal zones and have provided a sound basis on which
to formulate and implement future management of Spartina.
