The report discusses ecology, geology, stratigraphy, micropaleontology of 25 freshwater ponds including in detail ponds located on Cretaceous soils of SW Staten Island. Of the total some revealed transition from freshwater to saltmarsh conditions. Ponds were grouped into a particular ecosystem, related to each other on basis of many similarities/biotic and abiotic features. Some quantification/evaluation was made of the terrestrial flora and fauna. Flora and fauna of all magnitudes (water) were identified; pond-productivity was determined. This study includes description and stratigraphic sequence of biotic mineral constituents of a series of core and bottom samples taken from a boat.
