Abstract:
In an attempt to figure out the cause of the formation of the at least 1,200 pocosins, or bays, spreading over an area of some 25,000 miles, through North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, scientists have formulated 29 hypotheses to explain the phenomenon. Discovered through the use of aerial photography, the pocosins or bays appear as large, dark, regular-shaped elliptical ovals. All but seven of the pocosins have since dried up or were filled in. White, Black, Salters, Suggs, and Singletary Lakes are examples of the remaining mysteries.

Abstract:
Carolina bays and pocosins are two distinct physiographic features found on the Atlantic Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. Confusion frequently still exists pertaining to the definitions of both as they are often incorrectly assumed to be synonymous. This article defines each term and illustrates how bays and pocosins differ.

Abstract:
Thousands of acres of North Carolina pocosin wetlands have been developed without federal permits because the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers ruled they are not wetlands. Now the Environmental Protection Agency will decide whether state coastal areas proposed for development constitute wetlands.

Understory vegetation biomass and species richness response to site preparation treatments, fertilization trials and drainage locations in loblolly pine and pond pine plantations were studied in an Eastern North Carolina pocosin. Results indicate whether some ecosystem functions are being lost.

Abstract:
This study examined chemical status and its relationship to pine wood productivity, following plantation management, in pocosin soils of Eastern North Carolina. Results suggest that loblolly pine should be favored over pond pine in nearly all pine plantations.

Abstract:
This study is the first attempt to inventory and evaluate the mammals associated with pocosins and Carolina bays. During a four-year period, forty species of mammals were trapped or observed in twelve North Carolina habitat types. Fires, storms, and certain man-related disturbances seemed to be influences on mammal density and diversity in pocosin communities.
