Radiocarbon dating 101

They are named for the bay trees frequently found in them, not because of the frequent ponding of water.Undrained, often circular to oval, depressions exhibiting a wide range of area and depth are also a very common feature of the Gulf of Mexico coastal plain within Texas and southwest Louisiana.Species that thrive in the bays' habitats include birds, such as wood storks, herons, egrets, and other migratory waterfowl, mammals such as deer, black bears, raccoons, skunks, and opossums.Other residents include dragonflies, green anoles and green tree frogs.The uplands area surrounding the bay is being restored from a loblolly pine plantation to the original longleaf pine.

Other landform depressions, not widely accepted as Carolina bays, are found within the northern Gulf of Mexico coastal plain in southeast Mississippi and Alabama, where they are known as either Grady ponds or Citronelle ponds.Several carnivorous plants inhabit Carolina bays, including bladderwort, butterwort, pitcher plant, and sundew.Some of the bays have been greatly modified within human history, under pressure from farming, highway building, housing developments and golf courses.Carvers Bay, a large one in Georgetown County was used as a bombing practice range during World War II.It has been drained and is mostly used for tree farming today.

Within this part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the orientation of the long axes of Carolina bays varies by 10 to 15 degrees.
