Response of Waterbirds to Island Creation within an Estuarine Ecosystem
Trends and habitat associations of waterbirds using the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, San Francisco Bay, California: U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 2018–1040
The aim of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project is to restore 50–90 percent of former salt evaporation ponds to tidal marsh in San Francisco Bay. However, hundreds of thousands of waterbirds use these ponds over winter and during fall and spring migration.
The Critical Role of Islands for Waterbird Breeding and Foraging Habitat in Managed Ponds of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, South San Francisco Bay, California
The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project aims to restore 50–90 percent of former salt evaporation ponds into tidal marsh in South San Francisco Bay, California. However, large numbers of waterbirds use these ponds annually as nesting and foraging habitat.
Effects of regional wetland restoration on the Alviso Shoals of South San Francisco Bay: pre-restoration assessment of shorebird and invertebrate populations
Our goal was to evaluate communities of benthic invertebrates and shorebirds on the Alviso mudflat prior to breaching Pond A6 to serve as the baseline for future assessments of potential impacts.
Effects of regional wetland restoration on the Alviso Shoals of the South San Francisco Bay: migratory bird ecology, food webs, and sediment supply - Phase I Data Summary Update
This project will examine the bird population and benthic invertebrate densities on the Alviso Shoals immediately adjacent to A6 which separates Alviso and Guadalupe Sloughs.
