Project background. On the Texas coast, mangroves historically expanded into salt marshes during periods with warm winters, and contracted during periods with hard freezes (Sherrod and McMillan 1981, McMillan 1986). In the future, however, mangrove distributions are expected to steadily expand due to rising temperatures (Montagna et al. 2009)
