Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley
deforestation peaked in the 1960s and 1970s "as global market demand escalated," according to Emile S.
"Private lands are hugely important to waterfowl," says James Callicutt, Mississippi Alluvial Valley
Regional Private Lands Biologist at DU.
In 1981, Heitneyer and Frederickson co-authored a scientific paper that proved North American mallard populations were significantly impacted by conditions in bottomland hardwood wetlands during winter in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley
. Arkansas" duck habitat was suddenly very big news.
Apparent seed use by ducks in moist-soil wetlands of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley
To date, GreenTrees and its landowners have planted over 36 million trees on nearly 100,000 acres along the Mississippi Alluvial Valley
. United's support will allow GreenTrees to accelerate its success in emission reductions from two million metric tons of carbon dioxide to entirely new levels of conservation impact.
Jenkins, Murray, Kramer, and Faulkner (2010) provide an example of their simultaneous quantification and monetization for the Mississippi Alluvial Valley
, using models, as part of the CEAP project A complete assessment of the full range of environmental impacts associated with wetland restoration would require the coupling of carbon cycling, surface water quality, and hydraulics models such as those used by the U.S.
But more broadly speaking, and for the purposes of this article, the Delta refers to the entire Mississippi Alluvial Valley
. The northernmost slivers of it border southeast Missouri and extreme west Kentucky, but the vast majority of it stretches along-side both banks of the river in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
Although attention has been given to invertebrate diversity in this area (Velho et al., 2001; Higuti and Takeda, 2002; Lansac-Toha et al., 2002), there are no published records about the ecology and distribution of ostracods in the alluvial valley
of the upper Parana River.
Known as the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley
, the region was once covered in dense forests, but now supports less than 20 percent of its original 22 million forested acres.
At this point we were in a broad alluvial valley
, with steep ridges (very steep ridges) rising on both sides.
