Life History and Behavior
Glossary for Eudocimus albus
- Animal habitation
- The dwelling of an animal or group of similar animals.
- An area of water bordered by land on three sides.
- Body mass
- The amount of matter in the body of an organism.
- Clutch/brood/litter size
- Single birth offspring quantity. The proportion or number of offspring produced from a single pregnancy (mammals) or ovulation (fish) or nesting (birds).
- Coastal plain
- An area of flat, low-lying land adjacent to a seacoast and separated from the interior by other features.
- A plane angle unit which is equal to 1/360 of a full rotation or 1.7453310^[-2] rad.
- A semi-enclosed coastal body of water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
- Flood plain
- An area which is subject to periodic flooding.
- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
- Fresh water
- Freshwater habitat
- A habitat that is in or on a body of water containing low concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids (<0.5 grams dissolved salts per litre).
- Grams. A mass unit which is equal to one thousandth of a kilogram or 10^[-3] kg.
- Growth rate
- The rate of increase in the size of an organism per unit time.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.
- Habitat. (2013, August 9). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 19:01, August 14, 2013, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Habitat&oldid=567783959
- A category or description of the habitat in which the Event occurred.
- Area of dry or relatively dry land surrounded by water or low wetland.
- Iucn red list category
- A sheet of saline water separated from the open sea by sand or shingle banks. The sheet of water between an offshore reef, especially of coral and mainland. The sheet of water within a ring or horseshoe shaped atoll.
- The geographic latitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are north of the Equator, negative values are south of it. Legal values lie between -90 and 90, inclusive.
- Least concern
- A taxon is Least Concern when it has been evaluated against the criteria and does not qualify for Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable or Near Threatened. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
- Litters per year
- Number of litters per female per year
- The geographic longitude (in decimal degrees, using the spatial reference system given in geodeticDatum) of the geographic center of a Location. Positive values are east of the Greenwich Meridian, negative values are west of it. Legal values lie between -180 and 180, inclusive.
- Mangrove biome
- A mangrove biome is a terrestrial biome which includes, across its spatial extent, mangrove plants (Rhizophoraceae). Mangrove plants are able to withstand high levels of salinity as well as regions of anoxia and frequent tidal inundation. Mangrove biomes often occur near tropical and sub-tropical estuaries and depositional marine coastal environments where fine sediments (often with high organic content) collect in areas protected from high energy wave action.
- Mangrove swamp
- An swamp formed of trees and shrubs that grow in saline coastal habitats in the tropics and subtropics.
- Mixed forest biome
- A mixed forest biome is a forest biome which contains densely packed populations or communities of broadleaf and coniferous trees, strongly limiting light penetration to the forest floor.
- A liquid or semi-liquid mixture of water and some combination of soil, silt, and clay.
- Onset of fertility
- The age at which an organism develops the ability to produce live offspring.
- Grassland used for grazing of ungulate livestock as part of a farm or ranch.
- Per day
- A frequency rate of occurrences of something within a period of time equal to twenty-four hours.
- Per year
- A frequency rate of occurrences of something within a period of time equal to three hundred sixty-five days.
- A body of water, usually of smaller size than a lake.
- Population trend
- An area of land of low topographic relief that historically supported grasses and herbs, with few trees, and having generally a mesic (moderate or temperate) climate. Dominated by tall grasses (contrast steppe).
- Prenatal development duration
- The duration of the development from fertilized, deposited or implanted egg to hatching/birth. Corresponds to egg incubation duration in oviparous animals and to gestation period duration in viviparous animals.
- Saline marsh
- A marsh whose water contains a considerable quantity of dissolved salts.
- Saline water
- A grassland of the tropics or subtropics with scattered trees.
- Area covered with low-growing or stunted perennial vegetation and usually not mixed with trees.
- Shrubland biome
- A shrubland biome is a terrestrial biome which includes, across its entire spatial extent, dense groups of shrubs.
- A wetland that features permanent inundation of large areas of land by shallow bodies of water, generally with a substantial number of hummocks, or dry-land protrusions.
- Terrestrial habitat
- A habitat that is on or at the boundary of the surface of the Earth.
- Total life span
- The full period of time from birth to death of an organism.
- A physical quality inhering in a bearer that has mass near a gravitational body.
- Land having a cover of trees, shrubs, or both.
