Abstract

The biota of Chesapeake Bay seems generally less known than that of New England and much of our West Coast. The present work attempts to mollify this discrepancy. The compilation has been revised and expanded to include plants and vertebrates. Inclusion of creatures not strictly aquatic but which may occasionally found their areas flooded by tidal waters has necessitated subjective declsions of limitation.

Includes:

  • Lower Plants
  • Wetland and Dune Plants
  • Phylum Protozoa
  • Free-living Invertebrates (except Protozoa)
  • Fishes of Chesapeake Bay and the Adjacent Coastal Plain
  • Herptiles of the Maryland and Virginia
  • Coastal Plain Birds Dependent on Open Water or Wetlands
  • Mammals of Water, Wetlands, and Barrier Islands
