Abstract : This report summarizes, in tabular form, life history information for animal species identified at Lake Conway, Orlando, Fla. A total of 180 animal species were sighted or collected on Lake Conway during the period January 1976 through September 1977. This period coincides with the baseline period of the Lake Conway Large-Scale Operations Management Test to document the effects of the introduction of the white amur fish for control of the problem aquatic plant hydrilla. Information developed in this report will be used for subsequent analysis of the effects of the white amur on the Lake Conway ecosystem. (Author)
