This dataset contains i) the clonal expansion traits of three marsh species (Spartina anglica, Scirpus maritimus, and Phragmites australis) at marsh edges in a series of mesocosm experiments; and ii) cliff formation at mimicked marsh edges (S. anglica and S. maritimus, that with contrasting clonal expansion traits) in a flume experiment. This study examined how species-specific differences in expansion strategy, i.e. clonal step-length of laterally expanding tillers, both respond to sediment type and drive cliff formation and persistence.
