Summary:
This study evaluates the effectiveness of constructed shoreline features to develop productive littoral habitat along a water conveyance canal in an urban area. Natural revegetation and benthic community production of a contructed open and bermed shelf were monitored at three-month intervals to yield eight data collections between September, 1986, and June, 1988. Herbicidal weed control in the project area was discontinued during the study period so that natural colonization could occur.
