This project directly addresses a recovery action in FWS’s recovery plan for the snail kite (Multi-species Recovery Plan for South Florida - Everglade Snail Kite, 1999), which recommends the development of modeling that can predict the response of snail kites to changes in hydropattern anticipated for specific water management proposals (recovery action H3.1). The proposed real-time models would be a significant first step in completing this recovery action, which specifies modeling that would include “...linkage to apple snail distribution and abundance, vegetation characteristics in the landscape influencing the snail kite’s successful foraging, and linkage of all these factors to hydrology.” In addition, this...

The striped newt (Notophthalmus perstriatus) is a small salamander that occurs in xeric habitats (e.g. scrub, sandhill, and dry flatwoods) of the lower coastal plain and northern peninsular Florida. Like most North American amphibians, the striped newt has a biphasic life cycle (i.e., aquatic egg and larval stages, as well as terrestrial juvenile/eft, and adult stages, and requires wetlands for reproduction. Striped newts, and a few other salamanders, are capable of adding an alternative life history pathway called paedogenesis; i.e.,larvae develop gonads and are able to reproduce without leaving the water. Paedomorphs can still transform into terrestrial forms at later time. Paedomorphosis affords benefits...
