An article titled "A Mangrove Lagoon-Seagrass Complex on San Salvador,"
by Associate Professor of Biology Brad S. Baldwin, Kira A. Krumhansl '06,
Patrick J. McLaughlin '05, Gabriel L. Sataloff '05 and Molly J. Gove '06,
has been published in The Bahamas Naturalist and Journal of Science,
Volume 2, Issue 2 (September 2007).
An abstract states, "This study documents populations of ecologically and
commercially important species in a tidal mangrove lagoon (Pigeon Creek)
and a large adjacent seagrass bed (Snow Bay), on San Salvador. We monitored
populations of juvenile Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus), queen conch
(Strombus gigas), and the long-spined sea urchin (Diadema antillarum),
and documented species richness and diversity of fish inhabiting mangrove
roots from June 2004 to January 2006."
Baldwin has been
involved in long-term studies in San Salvador, Bahamas, and has taken many
groups of students there for academic study and research.
