This project evaluates the effects of global climate change and sea level rise on estuarine intertidal habitat in the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Flyway migratory waterbirds that rely on this habitat. Phase 2 of this project is a continuation of work to evaluate the effects of global climate change and sea level rise (SLR) on intertidal shoals in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and the migratory waterbirds that rely on this critically important resource in the Pacific Flyway. The primary objectives are to: 1) use downscaled global climate change models to translate SLR and climate scenarios into habitat quantity predictions through Delft3D and Dflow-FM (unstructured grid) geomorphic modeling; 2) model the response...

This map was created to help assess impacts on nonindigenous aquatic species distributions due to flooding associated with Hurricane Irma. Storm surge and flood events can assist expansion and distribution of nonindigenous aquatic species through the connection of adjacent watersheds, backflow of water upstream of impoundments, increased downstream flow, and creation of freshwater bridges along coastal regions. This map will help natural resource managers determine potential new locations for individual species, or to develop a watch list of potential new species within a watershed. These data include a subset of data from the Nonindigenous Aquatic Species Database, that fall within the general area of the 2017...

Land snails have been investigated isotopically in tropical islands and mid-latitude continental settings, while high-latitude locales, where snails grow only during the summer, have been overlooked. This study presents the first isotopic baseline of live snails from Fairbanks, Alaska (64°51′N), a proxy calibration necessary prior to paleoenvironmental inferences using fossils. δ13C values of the shell (− 10.4 ± 0.4‰) and the body (− 25.5 ± 1.0‰) indicate that snails consumed fresh and decayed C3-plants and fungi. A flux-balance mixing model suggests that specimens differed in metabolic rates, which may complicate paleovegetation inferences. Shell δ18O values (− 10.8 ± 0.4‰) were ~ 4‰ higher than local summer rain...
ABSTRACT We compared macroinvertebrate assemblages sampled from artificial and natural substrates within a small, sandy-bottomed coastal plain stream, Alabama, USA. Separate samples were collected from natural coarse woody debris (CWD) accumulations, benthic sand substrate, and Hester-Dendy multiplate samplers (HDs, 54-d incubations). Shannon's H? was lowest and % dominant taxon was highest in sand samples. Proportion of the total assemblage as EPT taxa (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichcptera) was significantly higher on HDs than from sand, and proportion of the assemblage as Chironomidae was higher from sand than on CWD. Invertebrate biomass on HDs was almost two times higher than from sand, whereas biomass...
