These three diagrams are for a series about the tidal estuarine vegetation in New Zealand harbours. One shows the estuary over time - from Holocene to the present- showing the gradual sedimentation and growth of marine plants, including mangroves. The next, the food web within mangroves, and the last, the growth of the invasive estuarine plant Spartina which has established a foothold in several NZ harbours.
