Measuring the Ecosystem Impacts of Commercial Shrimp Trawling and Other Fishing Gear in Core Sound, North Carolina Using Ecological Network Analysis
(East Carolina University, 2012)
The impacts of commercial trawling are well documented, especially alteration of benthic environments, removal of targeted and by-catch species, and alteration of food webs. I investigated and modeled the impacts of shrimp ...
Responses of dominant marsh macrophytes to inundation and disturbance and assessing marsh ecosystem services
(East Carolina University, 2009)
Within two hydrodynamically different inundation regimes in North Carolina, the growth response and interactions of two dominant marsh macrophytes were evaluated over a range of inundation periods to understand better how ...
Jellyfish-human interactions in North Carolina
(East Carolina University, 2013)
This dissertation investigated potential drivers of jellyfish-human interactions in North Carolina. Jellyfish populations and human use of coasts are increasing; therefore, jellyfish-human interactions are poised to become ...
Are Marine Migrations of Striped Bass Genetically Pre-determined? : An investigation of Albemarle Sound-Roanoke River Striped Bass Migratory Patterns
(East Carolina University, 2010)
Striped bass, Morone saxatilis, is one of the most thoroughly studied anadromous fish species in the United States, with records governing the management of the species dating back to the late 1600s. However, management ...
