MetadataShow full item record
Vegetative type mapping of Cedar Lakes, Christmas, Bastrop, and Galveston Bays was completed. Christmas Bay and portions of the southern shore of West Galveston Bay proved to be most productive of aquatic vegetation. Long-term vegetation trend transects in Laguna Madre, Aransas, Port, Copano, and St. Charles Bays indicated little significant change in species composition or density. Seasonal hydrographic and phenology stations were checked to monitor saline aquatic plant growth. No significant change from previously reported information was found.
