Data from wetland inventory maps was used in a geographic information system to classify feeding and roosting locations of wood storks on Cumberland Island, Georgia. The area near wood stork locations displayed differences in patch size and habitat diversity for both fresh and salt water wetlands. Habitat use by wood storks was found to be influenced by landscape level differences.

A reduction of the feral swine population on Cumberland Island, Georgia provided opportunity to collect data about species of the helminth communities present among the host population and compare with previously acquired data. 20 male and 28 female feral swine were collected between October 1984 and June 1986. This study recovered 9 species of helminthes.

Wax myrtle trees were evaluated for nitrogen fixation qualities as a possible alternative for biological forest fertilization. Experiments were conducted in a slash pine plantation near Gainesville, FL. Result indicate that wax myrtle significantly contributes to the nutrient cycle of forest soil by increasing nitrogen fixation.

Amphibians and reptiles were collected and identified from The Isle of Palms, South Carolina. Island Specimens were compared with mainland specimens to determine if there were differences between the populations.

Vegetation communities were identified and inventoried on 5 barrier islands and 1 mainland location in South Carolina. Site locations were relatively undisturbed and without significant development. Transect and quadrat sampling methods were used for data collection.
