    The terrestrial herpetofauna of the Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia, is reviewed. This is the first comprehensive account of the reptile fauna of these islands since Roux's monograph on the region in 1913 and is based on ...
  • Soicher, AJ; Peterson, FL (University of Hawaii Press, 1997-07)
    Water-quality degradation is often linked to land use practices in adjacent and upstream areas. Such linkages are here explored for the Lahaina District of Maui, Hawai'i, where severe algae blooms in 1989 and 1991 prompted ...
