Dwarf Glasswort
Salicornia bigelovii Torr.

Threats [-]
Hydrologic changes from ditching and road traffic, as well as invasion of common reed (Phragmites australis) is a threat to some of the salt marshes where this species occurs.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
Common Reed should be controlled in the salt marshes where it exists and steps taken to prevent new incursions. Natural buffers should be established around salt marshes to decrease pollution runoff and other direct human disturbances.

Research Needs [-]
Research is needed to determine how this species interacts with other species of Salicornia and what limits its population size within these large marshes.
