Title:  

Black Crowned Night-Herons of the Lake Calumet Region, Chicago, Illinois

 
 Volume/Number:  37 2005 3-4 August 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. This volume consists of two issues: 37 3 , entitled "Nesting Ecology of Black-crowned Night-Herons at Lake Calumet Wetlands" and 37 4 , entitled "Population Trends in a Black-crowned Night-Heron Colony at Lake Calumet Wetlands" Volume 37 3 Partial Abstract: We examined the nesting ecology of a Blackcrowned Night-Heron Nycticorax nycticorax colony located at wetlands associated with Lake Calumet in south Cook County, Illinois,during the 2002 and 2003 nesting seasons. This area of southeastern Chicago has been greatly impacted by heavy industry, solid and chemical waste disposal, urbanization, and altered hydrology. Volume 37 4 Abstract: The number of active Black-crowned Night-Heron Nycticorax nycticorax nesting colonies in Illinois has declined significantly over the past century. Habitat loss/degradation and other factors such as exposure to environmental contaminants and competition for nest sites at established colonies may have contributed to this decline. In this study, we examined recent trends in population levels of Black-crowned Night-Herons nesting at wetlands associated with Lake Calumet in southeastern Chicago, Illinois. The number of Black-crowned Night-Herons nesting annually at these wetlands has fluctuated widely over the last two decades. Immigration of herons from riverine colonies may have driven population increases during the mid-1980s and early 1990s. However, this population has remained relatively stable at between 300 and 400 pairs during 19972003.

Title:  

Distribution, Abundance, and Habitat Associations of Franklins Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus franklinii Sabine 1822)

 
 Volume/Number:  38 2007 1 February 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: To better inform conservation and management strategies directed at Franklins ground squirrel, Spermophilus franklinii, I reviewed published and unpublished accounts of the squirrels distribution, abundance, and principally, habitat associations. I present the body of literature on S. franklinii and include portions of original accounts to avoid potential bias from paraphrasing. A consensus of the literature indicates that S. franklinii is most frequently associated with habitat characterized by a mixture of grassy and woody vegetation, referred to as savanna-like or parkland habitat. Moreover, S. franklinii has had an affinity for this type of habitat throughout its geographic range in recent, historic, and even prehistoric times. This is in contrast to a view of the species as primarily associated with tallgrass prairie habitat. As indicated in the literature, populations of S. franklinii are subject to marked fluctuations, which probably are influenced by local disturbances in addition to regular dispersal events. In the southern part of its geographic range, S. franklinii is currently limited in its occurrence principally to roadside and railroad right-of-ways. In these southern regions S. franklinii is justifiably of conservation concern. I suggest that more detailed surveys for the species (such as those that have recently occurred in Illinois and Missouri) take place in Iowa and Kansas.

Title:  

Forbes Biological Station: The Past and the Promise

 
 Volume/Number:   10 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0036
 Description:  Irregularly published series focusing on specific topics. Excerpt: Since its establishment in 1894, the Havana research site of the Illinois Natural History Survey has been identified by a confusing array of names. It is fitting, therefore, that at the dedication of the expanded and improved facility we pay tribute to the founding genius of the Survey and of the Havana research effort as well as bring the confusion of multiple names to an end. This field station, which has been the scene of so many significant scientific investigations, is to be known henceforth as the Stephen A. Forbes Biological Station.

Title:  

The Ground Skink, Scincella lateralis, in Illinois: Range and Possible Recent History

 
 Volume/Number:  142 2006 September 
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois Natural History Survey Library 0182
 Description:  Irregularly published technical series. Abstract: The Illinois distribution of Scincella lateralis is portrayed on a shaded relief map. From map portrayal, this lizard appears distributionally uncommon and probably relictual in the north, common and distributionally continuous in the south. Some northern populations may be nearing local or regional extinction, while southern populations are considered secure. We speculate that northern range expansion probably took place during the warmer, drier Holocene Xerothermic interval from ca 8,000 to ca 4,000 years BP. The current range in Illinois cannot be interpreted to support a recent (ca 100 year) Global Warming Hypothesis, but it can be interpreted to support some regional cooling after 4000 years BP, and later (from ca 1650 until about 1850 AD.)
