Streamside habitats in southern forested wetlands: Their role and implications for management

The value of streamside forests to fish and wildlife and the influence of forest management on their value have been recognized in a general sense for decades. However, in today’s climate of increasing environmental regulation and intensive forest management, there is need for more detailed understanding of the value of...

Trends in wintering canvasback populations at Catahoula Lake, Louisiana

Aerial survey data (1968-1989) and water gauge readings (1958-1989) were examined to detennine trends in and relationships between canvasback (Aythya valisineria) populations and water levels at Catahoula Lake, Louisiana. Wintering canvasback populations at Catahoula Lake have increased over the past 21 years. A peak population estimate of 78,000...

Hydrological, morphometrical, and biological characteristics of the connecting rivers of the International Great Lakes: a review

The connecting channels of the Great Lakes are large rivers (1, 200-9, 900 m3 • s-1) with limited tributary drainage systems and relatively stable hydrology (about 2:1 ration of maximum to minimum flow). The rivers, from headwaters to outlet, are the St. Marys, St. Clair, Detroit, Niagara, and St. Lawrence. They share several characteristics with...

Foods and dietary strategies of prairie-nesting ruddy ducks and redheads

Actively feeding Ruddy Ducks (Oxyura jamaicensis) and Redheads (Aythya americana) were collected from North Dakota wetlands during the 1979-1981 breeding seasons. Foods found within esophagi were analyzed on a wet-weight aggregate percent basis. Male and prelaying and laying female Ruddy Ducks consumed >90% invertebrates, primarily chironomids...

Accretion and canal impacts in a rapidly subsiding wetland II: Feldspar marker horizon technique

Recent (6-12 months) marsh sediment accretion and accumulation rates were measured with feldspar marker horizons in the vicinity of natural waterways and man-made canals with spoil banks in the rapidly subsiding environment of coastal Louisiana. Annual accretion rates in a Spartina alterniflora salt marsh in the Mississippi deltaic plain averaged...

Rising water levels and the future of southeastern Louisiana swamp forests

An important factor contributing to the deterioration of wetland forests in Louisiana is increasing water levels resulting from eustatic sea-level rise and subsidence. Analyses of long-term water level records from the Barataria and Verret watersheds in southeastern Louisiana indicate an apparent sea level rise of about 1-m per century, mainly the...

Biological measurements and related chemical features in Soviet and United States regions of the Bering Sea

The U.S. results of a joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. expedition to the Bering Sea in 1984 investigated the chemical and biological interactions in the south, east, north and west regions. The nutrients, phytoplankton biomass and primary productivity were enhanced near the ends of a north-south transect of stations. The southern end of the transect had...

Field validation of a habitat suitability index model for the American oyster

A habitat suitability index (HSI) model, developed for the American oyster,Crassostrea virginica, along the Gulf of Mexico, was field tested on 38 0.1-ha reef and nonreef sites in Galveston Bay, Texas. The HSI depends upon six (HSI1) or, optionally, eight (HSI2) variables. The six variables are percent of bottom covered with suitable cultch (V1),...
