Abstract: Thepipingplover(Charadriusmelodus)and least tern (Sterna antillarum) are shorebirds that breed along coastal beaches and major interior river systems within North America. The interior population of the least tern and the Great Lakes population of the piping plover are federally listed as endangered, and the coastal and Great Plains populations of the piping plover are federally listed as threatened (Table 1). The state status of each species is summarized in Table 2. This report primarily addresses interior populations, which are known to be highly dependent on riparian areas associated with large river systems.
