Eastern Diamond-backed Rattlesnakes are currently the focus of significant conservation concern. The species has been petitioned for federal listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently working on a Species Status Assessment to inform the listing process.
This month, I take a look at a recently published paper that leverages the large dataset built over several field seasons to examine how landscape characteristics influence abundance in freshwater turtle communities.
Presenting our research lets people know what we are working on and provides a great opportunity to share success stories or lessons learned that could benefit other conservation projects.
There are a host of threats that have contributed to indigo snake population declines, range contractions, and ultimate listing as Threatened on the Endangered Species Act.
A fundamental goal in wildlife management and conservation programs is to understand the current distribution of a species and the habitats that it relies on.
