This SSP project provided reports on surveys conducted for Florida Grasshopper Sparrows at Kissimmee PrairiePreserve State Park in Florida during 2013 and 2014.
Hawksbill sea turtle genetics: Determining genetic relationships among Caribbean hawksbill nesting populations and origin of juveniles sampled at Buck Island
Hawksbill turtle populations have been severely depleted. We compared genetic diversity of females nesting at Buck Island Reef National Monument, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands with juveniles foraging in the region using standard control region sequences supplemented with nuclear microsatellite data. Four 760-base pair haplotypes were present among the expanded rookery samples: EiA01, EiA03, EiA11, and EiA20. In contrast, 61 foraging juveniles yielded 14 haplotypes, including three orphan haplotypes that have only been described from foraging aggregations and one novel haplotype. The haplotype frequencies for the foraging aggregation were distinct from those described from the Gulf of Mexico and Florida coast but...

Current distribution and control of the invasive Old World climbing fern on the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee NWR and in the South Florida Ecosystem
This SSP project conducted from FY2002-2006 had several parts: The optimal control model portion which was worked on by Scott Duke Sylvester for his dissertation research. A spore dispersal study conducted by Allison Snow (USGS employee based at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee NWR) A spore germination study conducted by Erynn Call (USGS employee based at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee NWR) A user interface for Scott's model done by Gareth Mann and Leonard Pearlstine, University of Florida. An analysis of Lygodium in the refuge from IKONOS data done by Ken Rutchey at South Florida Water Management District. The first and last projects were not funded with SSP funds, but are considered part of the project....
