Spartina Society Levels
The large, fan-shaped leaves of the sawtooth palmetto dominate many of Georgia’s coastal landscapes. They create their dominance on the forest’s understory by sending their stems horizontally across the forest’s surface and covering every inch of space. They have also created a close relationship with fire; the fronds are quickly consumed by the flames and help spread the fire. Once the fire moves on, they regenerate with all the new nutrients added to the soil. On close inspection, you can see the small saw teeth that run up and down the fronds’ stems. These “teeth” help protect the fronds from being devoured by grazing animals. On the other hand, fruits of the sawtooth palmetto are an important food source for bears, dear, mice, and birds.
