Development and management of avian habitat on dredged material islands by Robert F Soots( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seven regional DMRP studies were conducted throughout Corps of Engineers-maintained waterways to determine dredged material island use by nesting waterbirds and the succession of vegetation on these islands as affected by bird use, to compare diked and undliked islands and natural and man-made islands and sites, and to study migratory and year-round use of dredged material islands. These data and pertinent management information are synthesized in this report. Recommendations and guidelines for management of existing dredged material islands and creation of new islands are set forth by the authors. Five major factors determining selection for waterbird colony sites on dredged material islands are set forth: isolation from predators and humans, habitat diversity, nesting substrate stability, species behavioral characteristics, and species feeding and foraging habits. Management for waterbird colonies has been proven feasible and may be accomplished by several important factors: a) incorporation of management plants into routine dredging operations, b) interagency and intraagency cooperation, and c) public education and cooperation. It was determined that dredged material islands are often crucial habitat for colonial waterbirds and should be maintained and managed as such

An aerial survey of waterbird colonies along the Upper Mississippi River and their relationship to dredged material deposits by David H Thompson( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerial surveys of 1040 km of the Upper Mississippi River, Locks and Dams 1-26, showed 35 active colonies of five species of larger waterbirds (great blue heron, great egret, black-crowned night heron, double-crested cormorant, and Forster's tern) nesting in the floodplain. In addition, green herons and yellow-crowned night herons are reported as nesting, although location by aerial survey was not possible due to cryptic coloration and nest placement beneath the tree canopy. No species were found nesting on dredged material. In general, colonies were located on isolated insular natural sites on the east side of the river below dams and/or tributaries. Dredged material sites were found to be unsuitable for nesting because of high human recreational use of dredged material and the early succession of vegetation stages present. (Author)
Annotated tables of vegetation growing on dredged material throughout the United States by Mary Collins Landin( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents data collected on the vegetation of dredged material islands and sites in Corps of Engineer-maintained waterways throughout the United States. More than 2000 dredged material islands and numerous dredged material sites have been built in the past 100 years; 202 of these were intensively sampled and all vegetation recorded, identified, and/or collected as voucher specimens. Six tables present the following data: (a) An annotated listing by common name of 1120 plant species occurring on dredged material; (b) A selection of 361 upland and high marsh plant species and 115 wetland plant species that may be planted on dredged material for wildlife habitat enhancement and/or substrate stabilization; (c) Matrixes of the 361 upland and the 115 wetland plant species; and (d) An alphabetical group listing by scientific name and authority of the 1120 plant species occurring on dredged material. The data were prepared to provide managers with data pertinent to planned plant establishment on wetland and upland dredged material islands and sites throughout the United States. (Author)
A hydroponic study of heavy metal uptake by selected marsh plant species by Charles R Lee( Book )

7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eight marsh plants were grown in chemically controlled hydroponic solutions containing three concentrations of heavy metals to evluate the ability of each plant species to take up and accumulate heavy metals. The marsh plants studies were Cyperus esculentus, Scirpus validus, Spartina patens, Scirpus robustus, Distichlis spicata, Triglochin maritima, Spartina alterniflora, and Spartina foliosa. The heavy metals studied were zinc, cadmium, nickel, lead, and chromium, each at a concentration of 0.0, 0.5, and 1.0 ppm. Marsh plants were exposed to heavy metals for six weeks and harvested. Plants were separated into tops, lower stems, rhizomes, tubers, and roots and analyzed for heavy metals to locate plant parts where heavy metals may accumlate. Exposure to heavy metals adversely affected the growth of S. validus, S. patens, D. spicata, and S. alterniflora more than the other plant species evaluated. The species that appeared to have more potential in taking up zinc, cadmium, and nickel were C. esculentus, S. patens, D. spicata, and to some extent S. alterniflora. Lead and chromium accumulated in the roots of all species with very little translocation into plant tops. Phosphorus and iron content in the roots appeared to be a major factor in determining the ability of a marsh plant to translocate heavy metals from the roots into other plant parts

Proceedings of the National Workshop on Geotextile Tube Applications by National Workshop on Geotextile Tube Applications( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has used increasingly in recent years geotextile tubes filled with sand for the retention and erosion protection of dredged material in low wave energy, low tidal range regimes. Because little design and construction guidance for such application is available, a workshop was conducted to document the state-of-knowledge of geotextile tube design and deployment. The workshop focused on existing capabilities to design geotextile tube structures and lessons learned from field deployments. The presentations and discussions are summarized, conclusions are discussed, and suggestions for future research are provided
Comparison of abundance and diversity of young fishes and macroinvertebrates between two Lake Erie wetlands by Eric D Dibble( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shallow wetlands are essential in the early life history of a number of fish species (Jaworski and Raphael 1978) and are important as nursery grounds for fishes of inland lakes including transient Great Lake species (Mansfield 1984). Inland and coastal wetlands are important for fish production, because they contain shallow water habitats and aquatic plants used by spawning adults and by young fishes for growth and survival (Priegel 1970, Fago 1977, Mansfield 1984, and Liston et al. 1985). Aquatic plant beds in these shallow water habitats provide habitat diversity (Savitz 1981), complexity (Crowder and Cooper 1982), protection (Mittelbach 1981, Werner, Hall, and Werner 1978, Savino and Stein 1982), and food (Pardue and Nielsen 1979, Gilinsky 1984, Keast 1985). The Western Basin of Lake Erie once contained an extensive system of coastal marshes that served as spawning areas and nursery grounds for many different fish species. Today, many of these fish species have been reduced in number or have been extirpated (Trautman 1976). Reduction in fish populations is partially attributed to loss of aquatic plants and spawning and nursery habitats, due to alteration of coastal wetlands. Great Lake coastal areas not preserved and maintained as wetlands are now either drained and managed for agriculture or urbanized and contain little original vegetation and habitat (Great Lakes Basin Commission 1975)

The Collins and Travis families and their allies : the interrelationships of twenty-five southern colonial families and their development by Mary Collins Landin( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Collins (1612-1705) immigrated in 1635 from Kent County, England to King and Queen County, Virginia. His father, John Collins Jr. (ca.1590-1663), immigrated in 1655 to Surry County, Virginia. Edward Travers (b.1592) immigrated from England to Jamestown, Virginia and changed his surname to Travis. He married Ann Johnson, and while some of his children still used the surname Travers, his son William Travis (ca.1640-1680) did not and was the line used in this book. Intermarriage between the Collins and Travis families for the lines in this book occurred when Thomas Edward Collins Jr. (b.1908) married Nell Ellis Travis in 1937. They live on a farm near Utica, Mississippi. Descendants and relatives of the immigrant ancestors lived in Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and elsewhere. Includes ancestry on the Travis--Travers and some other lines to 1066 A.D. in England
