Relation of water level and fish availability to wood stork reproduction in the southern Everglades, Florida.

Date Issued:
1975
Summary:
The 1962 closure of Conservation Area 3 affected the water level of the Everglades, which has affected the fish population which wood storks rely on. The availability of fish affects when the wood storks set up nests, which in turn affects their reproduction success rate, which has generally fallen in the 25 years preceding this publication. Because of their sensitivity to these environmental factors, wood storks are considered biological indicators for the Everglades ecosystem. The data used in this study were collected between 1965 and 1973.
