Abstract:
The soft-plumaged petrel and related species (Pterodroma spp.) remain one of the most poorly known seabird taxa in the Atlantic Ocean. Study observations of petrels off North Carolina and other eastern states reveal the pelagic seabird to be accompanying flocks of mixed bird species during offshore migrations.

Author(s):
Abstract:
The tree swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) has expanded its range throughout North Carolina and the southeast, despite its reputation has a generally sporadic or irregular breeder. Research shows that land clearing, impoundments and other land use patterns, the reintroduction of beavers, and the use of bluebird boxes by swallows as nest sites appear to have facilitated the expansion.

Abstract:
A study examined eastern box turtles (Terrapene carolina carolina) for helminth parasites in thirteen North Carolina counties. The results indicate that a broad range of helminth parasites infect the box turtle, and appear to be regulated by a turtle’s diet.

Abstract:
Notropis chlorocephalus, Notropis chiliticus, and Hybopsis hypsinotus are three species of fish found in the Peedee drainage and the Dan River of North Carolina. During a study of nest association among North American minnows in 1987-1988, these three fish species spawned over the nest of bluehead chubs (Nocomis leptocephalus). The advantage of spawning in nests of other fish species may be increased egg survivorship with no costs of parental care.
