*Well Traveled Bird Seeks Fun Loving Plant: Waterfowl Seeking Submerged
Aquatic Vegetation Webinar date/time:  une 26, 2018 3:00 pm US/Eastern.
Duration: 1 hour What will you learn? Waterfowl populations in the northern
Gulf of Mexico (NGOM) rely extensively on plants that grow under the
surface in shallow waters, know as submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), as a
critical food resource in the winter season. SAV roots, shoots, and seeds
provide high carbohydrate wildlife food that sustains valuable waterfowl
species, including the American Wigeon, Canvasback, Ring-neck, and
Red-headed ducks. Waterfowl and SAV populations are closely linked in the
NGOM, and as the distribution of SAV shifts, the location and amount of
waterfowl populations will similarly shift. To fully understand how climate
change can affect waterfowl populations in the NGOM, South Central CSC
supported research how SAV habitat may change as salinity regimes, water
levels, and land configuration are altered as sea levels rise. Identifying
potential changes in SAV in the NGOM will help to conserve critical
waterfowl habitat as sea-level rise impacts the coastal
landscape. Presenter(s): Kristin DeMarco, Louisiana State
