Several cyprinid fishes are known to spawn in the nests of other cyprinid species, but cyprinid spawning in the guarded nests of centrarchids has been infrequently observed. Golden shiners (Notemigonus crysoleucas) were observed spawning in bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus Rafinesque) nests in a North Carolina pond. This spawning behavior may affect bluegill reproductive success.
The aquatic macroinvertebrates of the Upper French Broad River were sampled over a two-year period beginning in May 1977. The faunas are compared to those of other rivers and streams of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Information is provided on taxa richness and abundance, temporal and spatial changes in the benthic macroinvertebrate communities.
The eighteen terrestrial isopod crustaceans from North Carolina are reviewed with synonymies, illustrations, distribution maps, ecological notes and a key to species. The species can be divided into species exclusively from the seashore, and species from more upland locations.
This paper summarizes ecological and distributional data of the southeastern shrew (Sorex longirostris) in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Comparisons are made with accounts from other sections of the Dismal Swamp in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina.
