Baseline Port Surveys for Introduced Marine Molluscan, Crustacean and Polychaete Species in the South Atlantic Bight
PIs: Alan Power (Univ of Georgia Marine Extension Service), Randal Walker (Univ of Georgia Marine Extension Service), Carolyn Belcher (Univ of Georgia Marine Extension Service), Martin Posey (Dept of Biological Sciences, Univ of N. Carolina), and Troy Alphin (Dept of Biological Sciences, Univ of N. Carolina)
Support: Sea Grant College Program
Timeframe: 2003 - 2004
We have been compiling
information from various biotic surveys (technical reports, theses, scientific
publications) that have been conducted in the region to construct a database
on native biodiversity, and species distributions. To date, approximately 40
sources have been compiled for the database. Additionally research has been
conducted to obtain the information needed to describe each of the four ports
in terms of their history, geology, hydrography, and shipping movements.
Please keep us current by submitting updates and new project summaries.
