CESI Modeling Project 99-1
Simulation Modeling >> Current Page
The alteration or loss of habitat is one of the primary stressors for the threatened and endangered species of south Florida. Completed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1999, the South Florida Multi-Species Recovery Plan provides a valuable tool for both identifying lands important to imperiled species, and managing potential impacts to their quality.
This project incorporates species information into a Geographic Information System (GIS), and utilizes map layers to model habitat requirements. In total, twenty-two threatened and endangered terrestrial vertebrate species are examined, providing valuable insight into how we might prioritize land acquisition and protection.
