Landscape Structure of a Wetland: Tidal Creeks, Creek Networks and Habitat Distribution, Andros Island, Bahamas
Entry ID: RSMAS_GR004

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Tidal wetlands are very dynamic and vulnerable environments impacted a mix of
biological and physical controls that operate across a range of spatial and
temporal scales. Instead of attempting to isolate and evaluate the
characteristics of individual processes active in such coastal environments,
the focus of this study was a quantitative characterization of the spatial
anatomy of a Bahamian tidal ... View entire text
