Vegetation was compared between two developed and two undeveloped Georgia barrier islands. Human disturbance was found to have a significant effect on the distribution of alien plant species.

Diets of rice rats collected from Georgia saltmarshes were compared with laboratory reared animals to examine what portion of their diet was composed of animal food and what portion was composed of plant food. The study found a dominance of animal food in rats collected in the summer and fall. Conclusions indicate that rice rats serve as carnivores in saltmarsh ecosystems during the summer season.
