Spartina anglica is a vigorous and fertile plant which has spread spectacularly since its evolution from a sterile hybrid nearly a century ago. It now dominates the lower zones of salt marshes in temperate regions, presenting a number of ecological problems - and climatic and sea level changes are likely to favour further invasions in the future. Here research scientists from several disciplines discuss its effects on the ecology of intertidal mudflats and marshes in Great Britain, Europe and China.
