The dataset contains seedling survival, critical erosion depth and morphological traits for Spartina alterniflora and Spartina anglica when been exposed to a set of accretion/erosion regimes in the laboratory. The study aims at gaining quantitative insight into how salt marsh seedling survival is affected by short-term sediment dynamics, and to what extent this may be mitigated by morphological adjustments by the plant.
