Abstract : This report was the end product of an eight-week survey of the biological elements of the Cape La Croix Creek watershed near Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The purpose of this study was to identify and quantify the biological elements and to gather sufficiently detailed information to permit analysis and understanding of short and long-term local and regional impacts which may result from feasible water resource developments. In addition to obtaining quantitative data regarding the fauna and flora at designated aquatic and terrestrial sites, one of the prime purposes of this inventory was the qualitative evaluation of wildlife habitats found in the project area. This inventory served as part of a planning document for the Cape La Croix Creek watershed, providing environmental information to be considered in the identification of alternative solutions to water resource problems in the area.
