Woody fuel biomass was measured and evaluated for several sites on Cumberland Island National Seashore. Fuel loads were measured as one-hour, ten-hour, one hundred-hour, and thousand-hour estimates. Highest fuel loads were found in 5-year old regrowth forests and lowest fuel loads were found in 1-year old regrowth forests.

This study describes the investigation of two periods of oak decline along the South Carolina coast in the early 1980’s. Drought was considered the primary climatic trigger for oak mortality. The species most effected were red oaks.

This study examines the response of 5 species of vegetation found in barrier island swale habitat to fresh and salt water flooding. Of the vegetation sampled only Baccharis halimifolia was significantly affected by freshwater flooding. Saltwater flooding had variable affects on all vegetation at low, mid-range, and high salinity levels.
