All collected taxa were negative for CSS and MBSP during the winter.
No studies have investigated the overwinter presence of MBSP in D.
Our only practical explanation for these results is that raccoons were actively moving about the MBSP area until the beginning of turtle nesting.
As a consequence, predation on a high-density turtle nesting beach at Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge (HSNWR), 21 km north of MBSP, dropped from 42% to 29% in one year (Engeman et al.

EBITDA from continuing operations, excluding gains from the sale of MBSP and other assets, was $459.
The improved performance of TEPPCO's investment in Centennial Pipeline, which now comprises substantially all of Downstream's investments in unconsolidated affiliates since the MBSP sale, was due to increased transportation volumes, which averaged approximately 171,000 bpd in the fourth quarter of 2007, compared with 137,000 bpd in the fourth quarter of 2006.

Downstream EBITDA, excluding gains on the sale of our interests in MBSP and other assets, increased 31 percent to $49.
Construction of additional crude oil storage capacity, the new refined products pipeline serving Memphis International Airport, the Jonah Phase V expansion project and other smaller scope projects, together with the operating performance of existing assets, are expected to generate incremental cash flow for the partnership during 2007 in excess of the historical annual cash flow of the ownership interests in MBSP and the assets sold during the first quarter of 2007.
However, despite the first-to-market advantage, the final endgame for MBSPs will depend on their ability to execute on a smorgasbord of value-added services.
This Report will examine startup MBSPs such as Allied Riser, Broadband Office, Cypress Communications, and Urban Media, and more established players such as Intermedia, and fixed wireless providers such as Teligent and WinStar.
