Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Pacific southwest) : brown rockfish, copper rockfish, and black rockfish by Gilbert B Pauley( Book )

90 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 2,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Species profiles are literature summaries of the taxonomy, morphology, range, life history, and environmental requirements of coastal aquatic species. They are designed to assist in environmental impact assessment. Pile perch, striped seaperch, and rubberlip seaperch are popular sport fishes along the entire California coast. They are relatively common near wharves, pilings, jetties, and other nearshore structures. All members of this family are viviparous. Fecundity is positively correlated with size and age of the female. The young are released as miniature adults. All three species are relatively large for the family and may live 7 to 10 years. The primary prey items of all three species are various invertebrates; however, pile perch tend to prefer hard-shelled prey. The habitats of the three species overlap considerably. Little is known of their environmental tolerances.

Species profiles : life histories and environmental requirements of coastal fishes and invertebrates (Gulf of Mexico) : American oyster by Jon G Stanley( Book )

14 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This species profile is one of a series on coastal aquatic organisms, principally fish, of sport, commercial, or ecological importance. The profiles are designed to provide coastal managers, engineers, and biologists with a brief comprehensive sketch of the biological characteristics and environmental requirements of the species and to describe how populations of the species may be expected to react to environmental changes caused by coastal development. Each profile has sections on taxonomy, life history, ecological role, environmental requirements, and economic importance, if applicable.

Hourly and daily variation of sediment redox potential in tidal wetland sediments by W. James Catallo( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variation of electrochemical oxidation-reduction (redox) potential was examined in surface salt marsh sediments under conditions of flooding and tidal simulation in mesocosms and field sites. Time series were generated of redox potential measured in sediment profiles at 2-10 cm depth using combination Pt-Ag/AgCl (ORP) electrodes. Redox potential data were acquired at rapid rates (1-55 samples/h) over extended periods (3-104 days) along with similar times series of temperature (water, air, soil) and pH. It was found that redox potential varied as a result of water level changes and was unrelated to diurnal changes in temperature or pH, the latter of which changed by <0.5 units over the tide cycles. In closed, hydrostatic microcosms isolated from atmospheric oxygen, development of negative redox potentials proceeded rapidly (> 370 mV redox potential decrease in under 48 h). Attenuation of microbial activity by gamma-radiation and toxic chemicals eliminated this response. In tidal salt marsh mesocosms where the sediment-plant assemblages were exposed to a simulated diurnal tide, redox potential oscillations of 40-300 mV amplitude were recorded that had the same periodicity as the flood-drain cycle. Periodic redox potential time series were observed repeatedly in sediments receiving tidal pulsing but not in those sediments exposed to static hydrological conditions. Data collected over 12 days from a coastal marsh site experiencing diurnal tides showed similar fluctuations in redox potential. Data from these experiments indicated that: (a) redox potential can be a dynamic, nonlinear variable in coastal and estuarine wetland sediments over hourly and daily scales, and the designs of biogeochemical experiments should reflect this, and (b) redox potential can change rapidly and significantly in coastal wetland sediments in response to flooding and draining
