Abstract

This comprehensive final report summarizes the results of a four-year research and monitoring effort (1998 - 2001) designed to document nesting effort and success by wading birds, and to investigate the reproductive physiology and ecology of White Ibises (Eudocimus albus) in the Everglades ecosystem. The monitoring of nesting has been accomplished bystandardized systematic aerial and ground surveys and study of nesting success of nesting colonies in Water Conservation Areas (WCAs) 2 and 3 ofthe central Everglades. The White Ibis work was accomplished through 1) investigation of the nutritional, behavioral, and hormonal aspects of "normal" breeding in a captive colony of Scarlet Ibises (Eudocimus ruber, considered by many to be the same species as the White Ibis), and 2) documenting the physiology, nutritional state, breeding phenology, contaminant load, and hormonal status of free- living adult White Ibises in the central Everglades.
