Abstract : This appendix first addresses how the Bay ecosystem works and how various physical and chemical factors influence the system. Secondly, an identification and discussion of both the important species and communities in the Bay is provided. Because of the importance of water quality to the Bay biota, one chapter is devoted to identifying all Federal and State water quality criteria and standards pertinent to the Bay and assessing the impact of compliance with these standards on the Bay ecosystem. Lastly, this appendix identifies present and future problems as they relate to the Bay biota and the future studies that are required to meet the goal of developing a management plan for Chesapeake Bay.
