S.F. Treat, Editor

Below are links to the Proceedings from the presentations given at the fourth Tampa Bay Area Scientific Information Symposium held October 27–30, 2003 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Since its inception in 1987, the BASIS conference series has provided a forum for sharing state-of-the-art research on Tampa Bay. The theme of BASIS-4, Linking Science and Management, is organized around the major elements of the Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan: Water and Sediment Quality; Habitat Protection and Restoration; Fish and Wildlife Protection; Dredging and Dredged Material Management; Spill Prevention and Response; Watershed Management; and Invasive Species. More than 200 scientists, resource managers and students from the Tampa Bay area participated in the four-day symposium, which included 60 oral presentations and more than 80 posters.
