Historical and recent aerial photographs, vegetation and soil descriptions, as well as soil fertility measurements were interpreted to determine the role of disturbance in controlling boundary environments on Cumberland Island, Georgia. Disturbance was found to be a minor factor in the community dynamics, suggesting that wildfires in scrub and marsh environments should not be suppressed.
