Seabirds of the Campeche Bank islands, southeastern Gulf of Mexico


, : Seabirds of the Campeche Bank islands, southeastern Gulf of Mexico. Atoll Research Bulletin (481-493): 482, June

Seabirds of the Campeche Bank islands in the Gulf of Mexico were surveyed during 1986. Eight of 12 permanently emergent islands had active seabird nesting colonies during the study period from winter through summer. Nine species of colonial seabirds nested on the islands: Masked Booby, Brown Booby, Red-footed Booby, Magnificent Frigatebird, Laughing Gull, Royal Tern, Sandwich Tern, Sooty Tern, and Brown Noddy. Descriptions of colony locations in relation to vegetation or other island features along with bird censuses and historical records are presented. These large seabird populations in the southern Gulf of Mexico appear to have remained fairly stable, and they should be surveyed on a regular basis and protected.

The etiology of nerve cell death in neuronal degenerative diseases is unknown, but it has been hypothesized that excitotoxic mechanisms may play a role. Such mechanisms may play a role in diseases such as Huntington's disease, Parkinson'...

We used a comp...
