Devereux Slough - Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets and Snowy Egrets, August 2008
The Devereux Slough Monitoring Program (DSMP) was created in 2002 by Darcie Goodman, a PhD candidate at the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management. The original intent of the program was to develop a long-term monitoring program of the Devereux Slough and its ecosystem functions. Student interns collect field data and assist in creating an ecosystem-wide database of biotic and abiotic conditions of the Slough.
Monitoring Parameters Include:
The long-term collection of data is intended to track changes in wetland parameters, and determine if these changes are naturally occurring or caused by human disturbance.
