Nekton in Gulf Coast wetlands: Fine-scale distributions, landscape patterns, and restoration implications

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 Importance of Edge for Natant Macrofauna in A Created Salt-Marsh
(, 1994 Sep)
The relationship between marsh edge and animal use was examined in a planted Spartina alterniflora marsh located in the Galveston Bay system of Texas. A completely randomized block experimental design was used with each ...
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 ...
