      Goals / Objectives The overall objective of the proposed study is to quantitatively describe the structure and composition of the forested wetland communities within the southeastern US coastal region and determine how wetland functions are influenced by disturbance and changes in hydrology. Specific objectives include: 1. understand long-term ecological processes of freshwater forested. Ph.D., Ecology and Evolution, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, OVERVIEW.

Even the standard field guides, focused on one group of animals or plants, barely hint at the wealth and diversity of habitats and species along Gulf shores. Shore Ecology of the Gulf of Mexico, using a “whole habitat” approach, breaks new ground in describing all the conspicuous vascular plants, algae, birds, mammals, mollusks.
