Use of saltwater and freshwater habitats by wintering redheads in southern Texas

Behavioral data were gathered for redheads (Aythya americana Eyton) using saltwater and freshwater habitats in southern Texas, the northern portion of their major wintering range, in 1989–90. Saltwater and freshwater habitats were used for different purposes by wintering redheads. Approximately 41% of all redheads in saltwater habitats were...

The relationship between species richness and community biomass: The importance of environmental variables

Several studies have used plant community biomass to predict species richness with varying success. In this study we examined the relationship between species richness and biomass for 36 marsh communities from two different watersheds. In addition, we measured several environmental variables and estimated the potential richness (the total number...

The interactive effects of herbivory and fire on an oligohaline marsh, Little Lake, Louisiana, USA

Herbivory and fire have been shown to affect the structure and composition of marsh communities. Because fire may alter plant species composition and cover, and these alterations may have an effect on herbivore populations or foraging patterns, an interactive effect of herbivory and fire may be expected. In this study, the effects of fire and...

Seagrasses, dredging and light in Laguna Madre, Texas, U.S.A.

Light reduction resulting from maintenance dredging was the suspected cause of large-scale loss of seagrass cover in deep parts of Laguna Madre between surveys conducted in 1965 and 1974. Additional changes to 1988, together with an analysis of dredging frequency and intensity for different parts of the laguna, were consistent with this...

Winter biomass and nutrient values of three seagrass species as potential foods for redheads (Aythya americana eyton) in Chandeleur Sound, Louisiana

We studied biomass and macronutrient content ofHalodule wrightii (shoalgrass) throughout the winter and ofThalassia testudinum (turtlegrass) andSyringodium filiforme (manateegrass) in January in Chandeleur Sound, LouisianaHalodule, the primary fcod of wintering redheads, had the lowest biomass of the three species on the study area...
