Marsh terracing as a wetland restoration tool for creating fishery habitat
(, 2001 Sep)
Terracing is a relatively new wetland-restoration technique used to convert shallow subtidal bottom to marsh. This method uses existing bottom sediments to form terraces or ridges at marsh elevation. A terrace field is ...
Nekton in Gulf Coast wetlands: Fine-scale distributions, landscape patterns, and restoration implications
(, 2002 Apr)
Many decapod crustaceans and fishes are common inhabitants of flooded salt marshes in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, but spatial distributions are uneven, and population sizes are difficult to estimate. We measured ...
The distribution of benthic infauna of a Texas salt marsh in relation to the marsh edge
(, 2002 Dec)
Coastal salt marshes in the northern Gulf of Mexico are often highly fragmented, with a large amount of marsh edge, the interface between the vegetated marsh surface and shallow open water. Nekton predators, including many ...
Use of natural and created Spartina alterniflora salt marshes by fishery species and other aquatic fauna in Galveston Bay, Texas, USA
We compared densities of nekton and infauna among 5 natural and 10 created (3 to 15 yr in age) salt marshes in the Galveston Bay system of Texas to test whether these marshes were functionally equivalent. Decapod crustaceans ...
Chronographic Tethering - A Technique for Measuring Prey Survival-Time and Testing Predation Pressure in Aquatic Habitats
(, 1993 Nov)
A chronographic system was developed to measure survival time of tethered prey and quantify predation pressure in aquatic habitats. The system incorporates a small digital clock with a pressure-sensitive triggering mechanism. ...
