The diet of the Florida panther in Everglades National Park, Florida by George H Dalrymple( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Status of the Cape Sable sparrow by Oron L Bass( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors conducted surveys (primarily on foot) from 1978 to 1981, to document the present range of the Cape Sable sparrow (Ammospiza maritima mirabilis), its habitat use, and population size. This endangered bird's habitat primarily occurs in the the inland freshwater marsh lands within Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve, FL. The authors describe the birds' habitat, habitat use, and offer a population estimate. Maps are included which document the birds' locations for each year of the surveys
Status of the eastern indigo snake in southern Florida national parks and vicinity by Todd M Steiner( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The status and biology of the eastern indigo snake, Drymarchon corais couperi, the largest North American snake (Lawler, 1977), is poorly understood. Destruction of habitat and exploitation by the pet trade have reduced its population levels in various localities to the point that it is listed by the Federal government as a threatened species. Conant (1975) reported its range as southeast Georgia, peninsular Florida, and the lower keys, with disjunct populations in west Florida and southern Alabama. No specimens have been recorded in Alabama since 1954 (Neill, 1954), and it may now be extinct in that state (Mount, 1975). In southern Florida, the indigo snake has been reported to occur in several habitats, including dry Everglades marsh, tropical hammocks, and muckland fields (Carr, 1940)
Status of the osprey in Everglades National Park by Oron L Bass( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) populations in various parts of North America decreased during the 1950's and 1960's, primarily because of pesticide contamination, with eastern populations being most affected. The Florida population, considered to be non-migratory, contained low levels of pesticide contaminants. The major cause of localized population decreases that have taken place in the state has been destruction of habitat. This study analyzes the nesting population of osprey in southern Florida during the breeding season of 1978-80 and compares findings to that of an earlier study. The authors conclude that a substantial decrease has occurred in the number of ospreys nesting in Florida Bay. The survey area was divided into three regions: Florida Bay, Whitewater Bay and the Gulf Coast
Wintering waterfowl in Everglades National Park by James A Kushlan( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors analyze historical data and the results of censuses (conducted over three years) to determine the geographic distribution of waterfowl wintering in the southern and southwestern coastal areas of Florida--much of the study site was in Everglades National Park. The authors discuss the origin of the wintering population, waterfowl population levels, seasonality, regional distribution and the role of the Everglades estuaries to these waterfowl. Census data is presented in tables. A map illustrates survey areas
Opportunistic sightings of bottlenose dolphin, Tursiops truncatus, along the southeast Florida coast and Florida Bay, 1992-1997 by David B McClellan( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bottlenose dolphin, Tursiops truncatus, is the most common cetacean species found in nearshore waters of the Florida Keys and in Florida Bay. Opportunistic sightings from aerial surveys provide rough estimates of the relative abundance of bottlenose dolphin in these waters. These surveys have been conducted along the southeast Florida coast since September 1992 to document vessel usage in the Keys and since March 1995 to census bird populations in t he Florida Bay. Sightings of 1,851 bottlenose dolphins occurred in 109 surveys from inception through December 1997. Herd sizes, seasonality, and encounter rates were compared between the two areas, as well as with previous studies in nearby areas. The total number of bottlenose dolphins per survey was 18.57 (range 0 -- 116) in Florida Keys nearshore waters and 13.47 (rang e 0 -- 49) in Florida Bay. Mean herd size was 6.06 dolphins (range 1 -36) in Florida Keys nearshore waters versus 3.03 dolphins (range 1 -- 18) in Florida Bay. Seasonality had no effect on numbers observed in either area. Encounter rates were higher in Florida Keys nearshore waters (0.12 per nautical mile) than i n Florida Bay (0.04 per nautical mile), suggesting that bottlenose dolphins may be more abundant in nearshore waters of the Florida Keys than in Florida Bay
Twenty-nine year synopsis of the Coot Bay Christmas bird count : Everglades National Park by William Bolte( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes Christmas bird counts from the Coot Bay area of Everglades National Park, FL from 1950 to 1979. The bird count's location includes such park regions as Bradley Key, East Cape Sable, eastern Lake Ingraham, southern Whitewater Bay, Snake Bight, and several islands (called keys) in Florida Bay. A map in the beginning of the report shows this area. For each year's count, the following information is included: species observed, number of individuals of each species, total number of species, number of observers, number of parties, total party hours, total party miles, approximate total number of birds observed, and number of years each species was observed
