The ecology of the mangroves of south Florida : a community profile by William E Odum( Book )
10 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 343 libraries worldwide
The coastal areas of southern Florida inhabited by the mangrove form a distinctive ecological area and a rich natural resource. This work concerns both the mangroves and the various communities of plants and animals sharing their world and the complex relationships among them and with the geographic area they inhabit
Habitat suitability index models by Arthur W Allen( Book )
11 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 244 libraries worldwide
Review and synthesis of existing information were used to develop a habitat model for lesser snow geese. Model is scaled to produce an index of habitat suitability between 0 and 1.0 for lesser snow goose wintering habitat in Gulf of Mexico coastal areas of Texas and Louisiana. Guidelines for application of model are provided

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (North Atlantic) : sand lance by Peter J Auster( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 226 libraries worldwide
Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific southwest) : steelhead by Roger A Barnhart( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 223 libraries worldwide
Species profiles are summaries of the literature on the taxonomy, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and aquatic invertebrates. They are prepared to assist with environmental impact assessment. The steelhead Salmo gairdneri, an anadromous rainbow trout, supports an important sport fishery in the Pacific Southwest. Although native of populations of steelhead have declined, these fish annually enter coastal streams from northern to southern California in years when winter stream flow is high. Steelhead ascend coastal streams from the ocean to spawn in cool, well-oxygenated waters with suitable depth, current velocity, and gravel size. After hatching, steelhead fry emerge from the gravel and begin a freshwater rearing phase that generally extends from 1 to 3 years. Rearing habitat with proper environmental conditions is extremely important to steelboard production. Excessive sedimentation reduces food production, pool depth, and cover--all important to juvenile steelhead survival. Steelhead smolts migrate during spring to saltwater, where most of their growth and sexual maturity is attained in 1 or 2 years. Attempts have increased to protect wild steelhead stocks, to maintain existing spawning and rearing habitat, to restore or enhance degraded habitat where feasible, to use artificial propagation efficiently, and to establish fishing regulations that provide quality angling for steelhead
Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Gulf of Mexico) : blue crab by Harriet M Perry( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 222 libraries worldwide
Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific Southwest) : black, green, and red abalones by Jerald S Ault( Book )
5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide
Black, green, and red abalones (Haliotis cracherodii, H. fulgens, and H. rufescens, respectively) are of commercial and ecological importance and are distributed widely along the California coast. The abalones are morphologically similar; species are distinguished by particular shell sculpture, color, and body characteristics. Their latitudinal and bathymetric distribution is stratified and most closely related to temperature. Small juveniles eat mainly microflora; adults eat primarily drift macroalgae, preferring specific brown or red algae, when available. Spawning occurs during summer; gonad ripening depends on food quality and quantity and water temperature. Larvae are lecithotrophic and remain planktonic for periods of 5 to 14 days after hatching; settling is substrate specific. Postlarvae and adults require hard substrate for attachment. Juveniles are cryptic, adults usually more exposed. Growth rates are similar, although maximum size varies with species. Increases in shell length and body weight correlate positively with food abundance and temperature. Below depths of 6 m, sea urchins are major competitors for food and space

Habitat suitability index models : American black duck (wintering) by James C Lewis( Book )
9 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 152 libraries worldwide
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 index of habitat suitability between 0 (unsuitable habitat) and 1 (optimally suitable habitat) for coastal areas of the continental United States. Habitat suitability indices are designed for use with Habitat Evaluation Procedures previously developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Guidelines for roseate spoonbill model applications and techniques for estimating model variables are described
Habitat suitability index models and instream flow suitability curves by Wayne A Hubert( Book )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
Habitat suitability index models Eastern brown pelican by Terrence M Hingtgen( Book )
6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
