Abstract
This project was guided by a single question: if coastal or maritime forests are going to be developed, what advice can the S.C. Department of Natural Resources provide to minimize development impacts on wildlife and their habitats? To answer this question, this report will first provide a general description of the maritime forest’s biological community, including some of its typical plants and animals, as well as coastal species that are rare and possibly declining. This document provides information on the dominant habitats within, and adjacent to, maritime forest and some of the ecological relationships between plants and animals. And finally, the report provides guidelines on how to minimize impacts on wildlife while building a home in a wooded area.
