Abstract

in conventional agricultural systems, with livestock pres- Tipped Over Duck Nest Box Traps Turtles ent on the landscape for weeks to months, the disturbance in a Restored Wetland (Ohio) caused by grazing can be intense, even disruptive, as our Denis Conover (Dept. of Biological Sciences ML 0006, Boer goat study illustrated (Figure 1). Neither scenario University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH 45221-0006, would be expected, according to Connell’s intermediate 513/556-0716, denis.conover@uc.edu),Wayne R. Waulig- disturbance hypothesis, to support high S. If, however, man DDS (2170 Quail Run Farm Ln, Cincinnati, OH, IRG, which applies intense grazing pressure over brief 45233, 513/922-4430, wrwpgw@aol.com) and Karen Cody periods of time, creates a disturbance intermediate between (Fernald Nature Preserve, 7400 Willey Rd, Harrison, OH light and conventional grazing, then relatively higher S 45303, 513/648-4899, brightcodys@msn.com) would be expected in the IRG- grazed landscape. The inter - mediate disturbance hypothesis may help resolve incon- uck nest boxes are often erected in both public and sistencies in the observed impacts of grazing reported in Dprivately owned wetlands to provide nest sites for the literature (see Kleppel and LaBarge 2011), and further cavity-nesting ducks, such as wood ducks (Aix sponsa) consideration of this hypothesis would seem worthwhile.
