This indicator is a continuous index of habitat suitability for four shorebird species.Reason for SelectionThis index represents a variety of ecosystem features and the species selected are already being monitored for the entire region by state and Federal agencies. The relative use of beach habitat by shorebird species for nesting, foraging, and breeding is an indicator of beach quality.Input DataWilson’s Plover and American OystercatcherBetsy Von Holle (University of Central Florida) led a project that included state waterbird biologists in the South Atlantic: Tim Keyes, Felicia Sanders, Sara Schweitzer, and Janell Brush. They mapped habitat suitability based on nest, or breeding pair, density per beach segment,...

This indicator is a continuous index of based on the size of freshwater and saltwater marsh patches.Reason for SelectionLarger, better connected wetlands are positively associated with fish (Meynecke et al. 2008), shrimp (Turner 1977), and marsh birds. In particular, seaside sparrow (Benoit and Askins 2002, Rush et al. 2009), saltmarsh sharp-tailed sparrow (Benoit and Askins 2002), and marsh wren (Rush et al. 2009) have been associated with marsh area effects. Other species are expected to be limited based on home range size. In addition, wave attenuation is increased with wetland area (Shepard et al. 2011). Over time, a decrease in patch size will correspond to marsh degradation and wetland loss. As a wide variety...
