TOTAL INSECT BIO-INVENTORY PROJECT OF THE MOBILE TENSAW DELTA
John W McCreadie, Department of Biology, University of South Alabama
Peter H Adler, Department of Entomology, Plant and Soil Sciences, Clemson University
In 1995 Mobile Bay became part of the country’s National Estuary Programs (NEP). Included in the NEP
study area is the Bay proper and a large section of the Mobile/Tensaw Delta (MTD). The MTD, the nation’s
second largest river delta, is the 60-km long, 15-km wide stretch of wetland from the head of Mobile Bay,
north to the confluence of the Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers. Much of this 900-km2 area remains in a
natural state and under state and federal protection. The delta consists largely of cypress-gum swamps and
bottomland hardwood forests, interlaced with streams, canals, bayous and marshes. The Total Insect Bio-
invemtory Project (TIBP) will include the surveying, sorting, cataloguing, quantifying and mapping of
entities such as genes, chromosomal inversions, species, and communities. TIBP is intended to be a long-term
program (20 years duration) and involve expertise from a variety of sources. Insect identifications, to date,
are given below.
In addition to the TIBP, our research has lead to a variety of insect collections from areas in coastal Alabama
(Mobile Co., Baldwin Co.) other than the MTD. Identification of these insects is also given below. Currently
we have a large number of collections from coastal Alabama which are available to any interested researcher.
The only request we ask for the use of this material is to report identifications, including number of each
gender (where possible), and to return at least one representative of each species to the University of South
Alabama. All other material may be deposited at the institution of the researcher. All material for new species
may be retained by the researcher, with the request that a paratype be returned.
We gratefully acknowledge the taxonomic assistance of numerous people and a list of these individuals is
provide at the end of this document.
