Avian community assemblage and vegetation association in emergent marsh at Arkansas Post

Arkansas Post National Memorial » Avian community assemblage and vegetation association in emergent marsh at Arkansas Post » Document List

Emergent marsh habitat is imperiled and many species of secretive marsh birds are in decline. The purpose of the study is to document avian community assemblage and vegetation association in emergent marsh habitats along backwater and flood plain of the Arkansas River, specifically within the boundaries of Arkansas Post. These data will allow us to determine the presence of declining marsh birds and understand the vegetation community that is important for these existence, which in turn can be used to inform future habitat management and restoration decisions in the region.
