The summarization and analysis of the living resources of the Corpus Christi Bay National Estuary Program (CCBNEP) study area includes 3,178 species, eight major habitats, 49 protected species, and an introduced species. The overall organization and ecosystem approach of the review is presented as: the physical setting; the species; the habitats; the target organisms (i.e. species of concern, and trend-analyzed species); the probable causes of noted trends; and finally, the information gaps that have been identified.
