Snail Kite and Apple Snail Habitat Suitability Modeling to Support Multi-Species Management for Threatened and Endangered Species in the Florida Everglades
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...
