It has a medium amount of water level in the soil, so the partial drainage of water at the station wouldn’t have a huge effect in the abundance level of the plant. Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea is used to slightly damp areas, and as the ecotone is in between the marsh, and the forest, as it would still get water from both. Since the ecotone, where it is seen the most, on average, is not the driest area, it can be said that the amount of plants would decrease, if the water was drained, but it wouldn’t have a detrimental effect on the population of Cornus Stolonifera / Cornus Sericea present at the station....
