Checklist of the Marine Fauna and Flora Reported from the Region of Aransas Pass, Texas
MetadataShow full item record
This checklist is of preliminary form with the hope that this will be a beginning for a more complete annotated list of the fauna and flora of this region. In many cases, this list is quite obviously incomplete, such as the algae, for which there are many species found on the Port Aransas jetties which have not been reported in a formal publication. Further work on the taxonomy or the biota of this region will gradually fill the incomplete gaps, and the resulting list should then prove quite beneficial to field investigators in this area. The arrangement or this list is phylogenetic, with reference for each species indicated by the number of each reference.
