Abstract

This goals of this research and monitoring effort are to document nesting effort and roughly categorize success of nesting by wading birds in the central Everglades of Florida, and to investigate the causes of nonbreeding in a high proportion of the adult wading birds in the ecosystem The latter goal has focused on breeding of White Ibises (Eudocimus albus) and has been approached through 1) understanding the nutritional, behavioral, and hormonal aspects of normal breeding in a captive colony ofScarlet Ibises (considered conspecific to White Ibises) in central Florida, and 2) comparing breeding and nonbreeding wild White Ibises in the Everglades, in their physiology, nutritional state, breeding phenology, contaminant load, and hormonal status. This report covers work on this project between January and November, 2000. (81 page docoument)
