This is a continuous raster dataset identifying wetlands that are currently suitable for mottled duck brood-rearing activities in the Western Gulf Coast. The identification process is based on key biological parameters such as wetland type, number of years inundated, distance to brood nesting habitat, etc. Additionally, this raster dataset presents the data in a form that prioritizes habitat from more suitable to less suitable based on landscape metrics. The scale ranges from 9.9999 to .000005, higher value designating higher suitability ranking.
The mottled duck, a focal species for the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative, is one of only a few duck species adapted to breeding in southern marshes. A major part of its population spends its entire life cycle within a relatively small coastal area in eastern Texas and western Louisiana. This is a thriving part of the Mississippi and Central Flyways, two of four major waterfowl migration routes in North America. In recent years, the mottled duck’s habitat and surrounding areas have been compromised by urbanization, agricultural development, and changes to the area’s hydrology affecting coastal wetlands. The latter threat includes the ramifications of climate change, such as sea level rise and...
