Even an idea that die-off would’ve took place

Even though this paper is strong, there
are also weak parts to it that can be adjusted accordingly. At one point in the
paper, the author states that marsh recovering from die off resulted from the
marsh where treatments were placed. This could have affected the results in the
experiment because it was not an entirely recovered area. It would’ve been
better to look at the die-off in a marsh that was not affected by die-off to
grasp an idea that die-off would’ve took place just as rapidly in marshes that
are pristine. There could have been more experiments on other marshes to set
right this predicament but it would be a strenuous experiment to duplicate a
marsh that is different compared to the one that was used by the author. Both
the methods and cage systems in this experiment were calculated for the marsh
that was used so it wouldn’t be easy to copy anywhere else. Other than that,
these weaknesses don’t take away the significance of this experiment and the
conclusions about marsh die off being impacted by trophic cascade.
