A comparative ecology study of turtles inhabiting five golf courses and five farm ponds was conducted in the western Piedmont of North Carolina. Results indicate that both farm and golf course ponds can provide habitat for semi-aquatic turtles, and that the surrounding landscape can influence species abundances.
Morphological and meristic features of pure and crossed trout species were examined to see if hybrid trout features were intermediate to those of pure parents. Intermediacy was found in almost all hybrids and features. This suggests that problems will remain regarding whether they should be used in stocking streams with natural trout populations.
A key was prepared for the shell-less opisthobranch gastropods reported as occurring on the Atlantic coast from South Carolina to New Jersey. Forty-seven species were keyed out using primarily external characteristics.
Pine voles are rodents found in the Eastern part of the United States, and occupy a range of habitats including dry hardwood forests and orchards. A study conducted on pine voles in Henderson County, North Carolina found that reproductive success, pup survivorship, and pup growth did not differ between different types of habitat.
