Contents Notes The areas where the Chesapeake Bay's tributaries meet the Bay form the shallow-water ecosystems that provide breeding areas and protection for many of the seafood delicacies and waterfowl that humans cherish. Research has shown that human activities directly influence these shallow-water ecosystems. Any degradation of these systems impacts our quality of life. Marsh bird diversity, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in white perch, and abundance of submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) are three ecological indicators linked to land-use that are being investigated by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) as part of the Atlantic Slope Consortium (ASC). These studies provide strong evidence that the environmental and ecological conditions of estuaries depend on the land use in their associated watersheds.
