South Slough reserve Oregon

The Coos estuary and watershed contains a wide range of aquatic, terrestrial, and intertidal habitats, and a corresponding diversity of flora and fauna. The South Slough watershed presents an excellent microcosm of many habitats of the Coos estuary. However, there are three important differences between the Coos and South Slough watersheds: 1) the Coos estuary contains habitat types not found in South Slough; 2) the Coos estuary has sustained more intense development than South Slough; and 3) the Coos estuary generally experiences more tidal flushing and higher salinity than South Slough.

Biotic conditions and communities in the South Slough watershed, especially within the Reserve, are described in detail in, The Ecology of the South Slough Estuary: Site Profile of the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve.
