Other New England dieback sites
While extensive areas of high marsh dieback have not yet been discovered outside of Cape Cod, low marsh losses have occurred at numerous sites in Connecticut and Long Island, NY.
The patterns of loss are visually identical to those on Cape Cod that we now know to be the result of Sesarma crab herbivory (studies led by Dr. Mark Bertness).
Did You Know?
The Pamet Cranberry Bog in Truro was once an operating commercial bog. Workers, some of whom in later years were of Cape Verdean descent, maintained and harvested the bog from the 1880s until 1961.
