Abstract:

There is concern that the development of marshes and upland habitats on dredged material may increase the incidence of medical and veterinary diseases in the localities of those habitats. Faunal field inventory information and available literature were used to identify potential relationships between habitat associated animals and communicable diseases at habitat development field sites in Virginia, Texas, and Oregon. Medical and veterinary records were used to document the actual occurrence of diseases at these locations. No vector-borne, contact, or environmental diseases were identified from any of the field sites. Author
