Abstract : This report presents ecological baseline information on the biota of Fort Hood, TX. Surveys were conducted in fall 1978 and spring 1979 on the terrestrial and aquatic flora and fauna for the purpose of helping Fort Hood personnel more accurately determine the environmental impacts of their military training and related activities. Representative terrestrial communities were surveyed for vertebrates (mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians) and vegetation. Representative aquatic communities were sampled for periphyton, phytoplankton, zooplankton, macrophytes, macroinvertebrates, and fish. Data gathered are in the form of species lists, species composition, density, and/or relative abundance.
