Least Tern (Sternula antillarum) Science Article 3

abstract

The annual hydrograph of large rivers, including flood pulses and low-flow periods, is believed to play a primary rolein the productivity of biota associated with these ecosystems. We investigated the relationship between riverhydrology and Interior least tern (Sterna antillarum) reproductive success on the Lower Mississippi River from Aprilto July 1986-1993.
