Seed killing fungus widespread in area marshes again this year (video) | al.com: For the second year in a row, Alabama and Mississippi coastlines are suffering a widespread fungal outbreak that renders the seeds of one of the primary marsh grasses sterile.
The fungus is a normal component of coastal marshes the world over, typically affecting 10 to 30 percent of the seed crop in any given year, according to U.S. Fish & Wildlife research on marsh communities of the Gulf Coast.
