Abstract : The purpose of this study was to aid personnel of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in assessing the environmental impact of dredged material disposal sites by gathering information on those islands in Texas waters. Thirty-four islands were selected for detailed study, 17 in the Galveston-Houston area and 17 in the upper Laguna Madre near Corpus Christi. The following investigative activities were concluded: (1) the islands were photographed, visited by boat, and measured as to… 
Nest Sites of Seabirds on Dredge Islands in
Dredge islands are an important but relatively unstudied habitat for sea- birds on the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico and seabird use of the islands has increased over the last 5 years, with the exception of the least tern.
Colonial Waterbird Management in North America
Many species are likely to continue to suffer from gradual incremental loss and degradation of habitats, and a conservation strategy for the protection of these birds throughout North America is recommended.
Nesting distribution, age-related seasonal movements, survivorship, and mechanisms of population expansion in Pacific Coast Caspian Tems (Sterna caspia) were examined primarily through analysis of
Factors Affecting the Spatial Distribution of Black Mangrove on the Dredged-Material or “Spoil” Islands in the Lower Laguna Madre of Texas
Research was conducted to evaluate the spatial distribution of black mangrove (Avicennia germinans) on the dredged-material or “spoil” islands of the Lower Laguna Madre of Texas. Aerial
Quantify Wetland Bird Habitat Selection in Urban Environment
Background: As the importance of wetlands is recognized by society, the awareness of protecting wetlands is gradually awakening. Wetland conservation actions have been taken around the world, which
Special species and ecosystem preserves: Colonial water birds in US national parks
An important aspect of developing a philosophical foundation for management of reserves using an ecosystem approach is the exploration of the relationship of ecosystem management strategies to the
Habitat Suitability Index Models: Roseate Spoonbill,
Abstract : A review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a model suitable for evaluating coastal habitat of roseate spoonbill (Ajaia ajaja). The model is scaled to produce an
