Abstract : San Francisco Bay, the largest estuary on the Pacific coast, historically contained an extensive contiguous system of salt and brackish tidal marshes. Urbanization has decreased tidal marshes by 95% and created a patchwork of remnant tidal marshes highly impacted by human activity. This document compiles available published and unpublished scientific literature to describe the current status and ecology of these remaining marshes.
